Come and see NHS England at this year’s NHS Confederation’s Annual Conference and Exhibition: 4 – 6 June, Liverpool ACC

NHS Confederation brings together senior decision-makers from across the whole of the health system. With over 2,000 attendees expected to attend, the conference provides the perfect forum to discuss current health policy and share innovation and best practice.

Over the course of the conference, NHS England speakers will address the issues that matter for patients head on.

In his keynote speech on Wednesday 4 June, Chief Executive of NHS England, Simon Stevens, will set out his take on how the health service will need to change.

On Thursday 5 June, hear how commissioning can deliver for patients, and the public, with National Director for Commissioning Development Ros Roughton and leading CCGs.

Join us for our breakfast session ‘Nurse of the future’ with Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, on Friday 6 June, and then hear Medical Director Professor Sir Bruce Keogh as he outlines what we need to do to make seven-day services a reality for the public. But don’t leave Confed without hearing Tim Kelsey’s vision for transparency and participation that can improve lives and save money.

Come and talk to NHS England on stand A11 and A7 and find out how we’re putting people first.

Further information can be found on the NHS Confederation’s website.

Join the conversation @NHSC_conference, #confed2014.

    As a member of Health watch and a governor of a Health trust,I attend many meetings at some I find problems due to.the lack of any hearing loops.
    Hearing problems are now a registered disability,but this seems to be unknown to many health professionals and the public in general..
    What is the law/regulations regarding loop systems in meeting places ?

    • NHS England says:

      Hi Norman,

      Thank you for you comment.

      The Equality Act 2010 states that you must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ so that your service is accessible however venues don’t legally have to provide hearing loops although it’s best practice to do so. Without making necessarily accessibility changes, you may be considered to be discriminating against disabled people and could face legal action.

      NHS England ensures that all of its events are fully accessible to everyone that attends

      Kind Regards
      NHS England
