The role of communications professionals in the NHS is critical to building relationships and strengthening the reputation of your organisation and the sector.

NHS Communicate Conference 2021 is a brand new event taking place on 15 September and is specifically designed for NHS communications leaders.

Delivered in partnership by the NHS Confederation, NHS Providers and The Centre for Health Communications Research (CHCR), we’ll bring you the very latest insight and debate to help you look ahead with confidence and drive innovation to deliver tactical and strategic impact in health communications.

Why attend?

This September, our virtual event will offer some much-needed perspective on what the future holds for you, your team and your organisation following the impact of the pandemic.

We’ll gather senior-level, communications professionals in the health sector to debate mission critical issues with top speakers and invaluable networking. Engage, connect and empower your communications team through the next year with our carefully considered range of topics.

Be inspired by top speakers from inside and outside the sector as they rethink and update their communications strategies to help you prepare for the new realities of system working in a post-pandemic world.

Who attends?

The NHS Communicate conference provides a great opportunity to catch up and exchange ideas with peers from across the sector. It is designed for senior level communications professionals from:

  • NHS trusts and foundation trusts
  • integrated care systems
  • primary care networks and primary care federations
  • clinical commissioning groups
  • voluntary providers of NHS-funded care
  • national bodies. 


The agenda is designed to give you a new perspective on the environment we’re working in, the tools to create compelling communications and the flexibility to adapt quickly to future challenges.

We’re currently working on a dynamic programme with expert content to help you in your role. Stayed tuned for more announcements by following us on Twitter @NHSCommunicateevent #NHSCommunicate
