NHS Confederation Conference 2018

The NHS Confederation’s annual conference and exhibition is a unique experience where health and social care leaders can face shared challenges, find practical solutions, celebrate past successes and shape future ones. With this in mind, our event this year will concentrate on workforce, reform and the 70th birthday of the NHS.

These key themes will be supported by six focused strands: digital; transformation; integration; efficiency and productivity; workforce and leadership.

Join us at the NHS Confederations event focusing on digital and technology in the NHS. Running in association with their annual conference and exhibition this affordable one-day conference will give you a safe environment to network with peers and contribute to discussions that will shape the future of healthcare.

Taking place in Manchester on 13 June, Focus on digital and technology is a plenary stage that will be devoted entirely to this important aspect of health and social care. It is the focal point of a dedicated event on day one of Confed18, where you will have a unique opportunity to: 

•    discover what is driving the digital and technology health revolution
•    learn groundbreaking solutions to system-wide problems
•    forge new partnerships with health and social care colleagues from across the country 
•    continue your learning and professional development by registering to receive CPD points.

As a delegate of the Confed18 Focus on digital and technology event, you will have access to the main conference exhibition, allowing you to share good practice, take part in interactive exhibition zones and challenge healthcare leaders at the In conversation with zone, hosted by Channel 4 News health and social care correspondent, Victoria MacDonald. 

You will also have the opportunity to watch a livestream of the keynote address from NHS England chief executive, Simon Stevens, who will be speaking on the main stage.
