Health and social care are a big focus for our events programme. In addition to our regular briefings with top-level representatives of the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England, Public Health England and NHS Digital, we will be looking at topics that feature on the agenda of our public, private and not-for-profit sector members.

The creation of NHSX to take forward digital transformation across our healthcare system and the increasing use of big data and machine learning to improve diagnosis and prevention open up new areas of cross-sector collaboration. We will build on our previous work in these area and, drawing on member expertise and research, our health and social care programme will focus on:

  • Digital healthcare
  • Preventative health and wellbeing
  • Public and global health
  • Mental health
  • Social care

If you have any topic suggestions or wish to contribute to our programme please get in touch.
