About this event

Our annual Leadership and management summit is the number one event for leaders and managers working in health and care. Now in its seventh year, the conference will focus on collaboration and working across organisational boundaries.

In line with the ambitions set out in NHS five year forward view; the NHS, local government, third sector and partners are rebuilding the health and care system through the sustainability and transformation planning (STP) process, to shape services around patient and community needs, in ways which are financially sustainable.

This year’s national summit focuses on the consequences for leaders throughout the system; the need to work collaboratively in networks across local health economies, with collective responsibility for delivering complex, sustainable change.

Our tailored agenda has been designed to support experienced leaders from across the third sector, NHS, local government and private sector, to consider the leadership practices needed to navigate this field.
