Please see below details of the Future of Health Event.
Future of Health is a one day conference on the 21st November, 2014 at Kensington Olympia in London, run by NHS England, UCLPartners and Dods. Last year’s conference - focusing on improving care for patients living with long-term conditions - was a great success with a footfall of over 1000 participants, significant press coverage, and a British Media Award for best event.
Most notably it started a conversation on what was important to people with long-term conditions, led significantly by the People’s Panel, who eloquently told their stories and what they wanted from the health and care systems.
This year we want to further involve people with experience of living with long-term conditions - whether patients or carers - to an even greater extent. You can read more about the process so far here. In consultation with members of the 2013 People’s Panel and other stakeholders, we have developed a variety of new roles in addition to a new Panel, including: speakers, chairs, mentors, and citizen journalists. You can read more about these roles, alongside the support we’ll provide, on the attached document and if you like what you see we would love to have you involved!
We welcome expressions of interest from any patients or carers interested in helping to partner with us to deliver a truly patient-focused conference.
