Based on unprecedented political support, Health and Wellbeing 2026 – Delivering Together was published in late 2016. Now, over a year on, in the face of political uncertainty and considerable pressure on services, NICON18 will bring system leaders and partners together to highlight progress and explore the key challenges, as we collectively seek to lead the next stage of implementation.
At the NICON18 annual conference and exhibition, you will have the opportunity to:
- Better understand the vision, strategic context and the progress to date
- Hear from an array of influential speakers about emerging local, national and international best practice
- Network with leaders from across every sector of health and social care
- Join a range of practical workshops and have your voice heard
- Visit around 50 exhibitors showcasing a range of helpful products and services
- Celebrate 70 years of the NHS at our gala dinner
- Build your capacity to be part of the collective leadership community
- Further your professional development and receive CPD points.

This event will be of interest to HSC senior leaders, our partners in the third and independent sectors, public representatives, managers and clinicians, patients and service users, students and many of our partners across wider public sector working in partnership with the HSC.
