 We are welcoming all Managers, Nurses, Doctors, Dentists, and other professionals working within the health and social care setting to attend this all-day conference.

It is no secret that it is tough working in healthcare at the moment, and many are struggling to keep their head above water.

This conference will enable you to reflect and re-energise to face these challenges. The day will involve a programme of presentations, workshops and reflective sessions designed to bring people together to learn.
