Creating a holistic strategy around recruitment and retention to alleviate pressures and embed the NHS People Plan

Join senior colleagues from across the NHS at the inaugural HSJ Workforce Forum to properly assess challenges around workforce shortages and retention, and identify next steps in aligning with and delivering the national strategy.

Shape the NHS workforce of the future with 100+ peers across trusts, CCGs, STPs and ICSs, plus:

  • Quiz policy makers and NHS leaders on strategy and what it means for the NHS workforce
  • Gain inspiration and learn from examples across other NHS organisations and systems
  • Immerse yourself in a full day of interactive sessions and networking
  • Benefit from a Chatham House environment to ensure safe, honest and open conversations
  • Solve local challenges through intimate and focused table discussions with peers from across the country


Why should you attend?

High-profile speakers: We don’t just feature the biggest names in healthcare. We make sure that they feel comfortable in being totally honest and frank in their views. The Chatham House Rule is enforced and delegates have extensive opportunities to ask questions and challenge the opinions of our speakers

Fantastic Networking: HSJ is proud of the fact that time and time again, it can fill a room with healthcare leaders. The networking opportunities on offer are unrivalled with invitations to the summits carefully monitored.

Learn alongside your peers: We aim for you to leave an HSJ Summit brimming with ideas to enable you to make positive changes in your organisation. We know we’ve succeeded when the knowledge that’s been shared leads to improved patient outcomes and a better NHS

Fresh formats: All HSJ Summits are geared toward giving you maximum opportunity for learning, networking and interacting with the content on offer. Speakers will share their stories and steer the conversation. However, there’s no passive listening to endless PowerPoint slides – this is designed to be an interactive, enjoyable and beneficial use of your valuable time

Your contribution matters: The secret of a successful summit stems from the quality of the debate. This isn’t a one-way transfer of information. This is an opportunity to share your insights and engage with other like-minded colleagues.
