Confed17, the NHS Confederation's new-look flagship annual conference and exhibition, will be held at the ACC Liverpool on 14 and 15 June, just one week after the General Election. The full two day event will bring together the whole health and social care community, strengthening relationships and showcasing innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of organisations across the NHS and wider health and care sector.

What is new?

Following feedback from last year, the event programme has been revamped into a new two-day format, providing the same value, content, exhibition time and networking as previous years, but requiring less of your time out of the office and money spent on accommodation. Costs for tickets have also been capped at last year’s rates to ensure you continue to get excellent value for money. 

• Refreshed full two day programme
• First ever Communications Conference
• Full day NHS Employers workforce summit 
• New fringe programme

Book your place at Confed17 to take part in challenging healthcare discussions, to ensure your organisation is represented and to hear the latest expert thinking.  

Programme and speakers

The event is structured around six conference themes with a mix of plenary sessions, panel discussions, debates, seminars and workshops.

Workforce-related sessions include: Brexit and Beyond – Securing the health and social care workforce, now and in the future; Counting The People – How can the NHS make the most of its workforce and support them to be more productive?; Fit For The Future – How will the mental health workforce need to change to suit integrated services? and Saving Our Services – Why are local campaigns fighting to save the NHS from transformation?
