Social media continues to dominate our everyday working lives and has become an almost unavoidable method of sharing information, digitally across the healthcare sector. However, despite the rise in use of social media, a lack of formal training leaves many accounts without a clear purpose. 

With this in mind, we are holding our first-ever social media conference, an event designed to help organisations use social media more effectively, choose the right audience and know the right time and place to share messages.

With speakers from across the healthcare sector and beyond, we have brought together perspectives from patients, healthcare professionals and NHS managers to discuss how best to use social media as a communications channel.


The programme features 13 speakers from healthcare and beyond. A keynote address will be delivered by Tim Lloyd, director at Helpful Technology, where he’ll explain why your best staff are the ones using social media. 

Guest speakers include:

  • Anya de Iongh, a patient leader and self-management coach
  • James Norris from Dead Social 
  • Jon Latham from NHS Blood and Transplant.
