Open to all

NHS Employers’ Step into Health programme and the supporting Armed Forces reservists in the NHS programme are proud to announce that bookings are now open for our third annual conference, which will take place virutally and be themed ‘our future together’.

The NHS and the Armed Forces have a long-standing relationship which is more evident now than ever as a result of the cooperative work carried out during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our previous conferences have celebrated this close working relationship between the two services, highlighting the Armed Forces contribution to continuing NHS services and the vaccination programme, as well as exploring work in the NHS and support available to our Armed Forces community.

Join us in exploring NHS priorities and policy changes linked to developments in the Ministry of Defence, including the new Armed Forces Act and Reserve Forces Review 2030. You will also hear from individuals with lived experience and learn good practice from some of our top NHS champions and recruiters.

 Key speakers will include:

  • the Defence Medical Services, Walking With The Wounded, the Royal Foundation
  • NHS Armed Forces and reservist champions
  • NHS Armed Forces medical reservists
  • members of the Armed Forces community who have successfully transitioned into NHS roles.


We welcome NHS directors and managers, Armed Forces and reservist champions, recruiters, HR representatives and all colleagues with a responsibility for widening participation, equality, diversity and inclusion.

Further details will be announced over the coming weeks – follow us on Twitter and join our mailing list to be notified of updates. Visit our supporting the Armed Forces community webpage to learn more about the valuable work being carried out by the Step into Health and supporting reservist programmes.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at what promises to be an exciting and informative day.
