NHS Confederation, NHS Employers and NHS Clinical Commissioners are all appearing at this year’s Health and Care Innovation Expo, as part of our wider work to support innovation in the NHS.
Confed and Employers chief executives Rob Webster and Danny Mortimer will feature among the event's influential speakers, which takes place in Manchester from 2-3 September.
On day one, Rob Webster will chair a panel of leaders from provider organisations who will present the issues they face, before discussing potential solutions. The panel comprises leaders from organisations across the north west of England, including Sir David Dalton from Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, who recently featured in a podcast for the NHS Confederation.
On day two, Danny Mortimer will present the second Kate Granger Compassion in Care Awards, which the event will host from 12.30-2pm. The awards recognise staff and teams who have made a positive difference to patient care and are created in honour of Dr Kate Granger, who continues her inspirational work to raise awareness around compassion in the NHS.
What the NHS thinks of innovation
With innovation increasingly held up by national bodies as a solution to many of the challenges in health and care, the next issue of the Confed’s member publication, The Insider, will focus on this important topic.
Published to coincide with this year’s Expo, The Insider will share members’ views on innovation, its potential to help meet the NHS efficiency targets and the requirement to implement it at pace and scale across the NHS.
