1. Keynote Theatre

The Healthcare Show’s main stage plays host to a lively, provocative, and inspirational set of talks, panel discussions and presentations from the leading lights from health, social care and beyond.

Sessions will focus on the bigger picture for healthcare as the whole country recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic and the NHS seeks to get its policy agenda back on track.

Sessions will focus on major policy updates around the NHS Long Term Plan and the NHS People Plan as well as illuminating fireside chats with the most prominent leaders from the NHS and Government.

Inspiring and heart-breaking stories from the frontline will help us reflect and learn from the challenges faced by our workforce during Covid-19 and we’ll find out more about the UK’s response and next steps in relation to the pandemic. Fascinating case studies from international countries will relay their experiences and learning from coronavirus so we can be better prepared and ready for future events.

The pandemic has also shone a light on how more needs to be done in terms of prevention and a better joined-up approach between health and social care. After many false dawns a panel of experts will debate what integration is possible and what needs to happen. We’ll also cover further detail on the successor agency to Public Health England – the National Institute for Health Protection.

Who’s it for? : Senior clinicians and managers working in all sectors of the NHS, adult social care, public health, the VCSE and private sector.

2. Integrated Care Theatre

At the heart of The Healthcare Show is a packed, two-day agenda focused on all aspects of integrated care with leading experts from the world of integrated care providing tangible, real world, successful examples of population health management that could be adopted in your own organisation.

Despite the difficulties faced during the pandemic all Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) are expected to come online by April and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are slowly taking shape and developing. You’ll find out more on all aspects of this from a policy perspective, including developments regarding funding and legislation.

Attendees will learn from trailblazing and aspirant ICSs what effective integration really looks like, how it is being achieved and what tangible benefits are being realised as a result.

Who’s it for? : ICS leads, programme directors and independent chairs, leads of ICPs and other place-based partnerships and alliances, Clinical Directors of Primary Care Networks, Accountable Officers and other senior figures from CCGs. Senior clinicians and managers from  NHS Trusts, senior figures from local government, public health and adult social care and healthcare integration partners from the VCSE and private sector.

3. Transformation Theatre

Brand new for 2022 – our transformation theatre will take audiences on a journey of discovery to find out the most innovative examples of transformation taking place in hospitals and in primary care.

Sessions will focus on truly ground-breaking pieces of work related to organisational development, implementation of new technologies, changes to existing care pathways and major capital projects related to the NHS estate and infrastructure.

4. Clinical Priorities Theatre

New for 2022 is a theatre dedicated to the clinical priority areas set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. Sessions will focus on the national and local picture in relation to diabetes, mental health, cardiovascular disease, respiratory illnesses and cancer.

Unlike other events there is a unique opportunity for separate therapy area communities to come together and share best practice in one place.

5. Patient Safety and Infection Prevention Theatre

The coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated that a greater focus than ever is needed on patient safety and infection prevention.

Sessions at Patient Safety and Infection Prevention will cover the latest national guidelines and offer practical solutions that delegates can put into practice immediately and for the future. This includes deep dives on the use of technology to identify early-stage infections, how you can transform patient safety through a change in culture and examples of successful infection prevention across NHS hospitals and beyond.

6. Care Quality and Efficiency Theatre

New for 2022, the care quality and efficiency theatre zones are the two most fundamental issues for the NHS. Packed sessions will present topical and useful case studies which you can use to implement at your own organisation. The ambition for all sessions is how to reduce variation in the quality of care for the most affordable price – the holy grail for the NHS!
