Healthcare event organiser The Dods Group has announced its plans for its inaugural Festival of Health, to be held at the Manchester Central Convention Complex on the 9th and 10th of September, 2020.
The event could welcome up to five-thousand delegates including NHS, clinical and social care professionals, as well as industry leaders from numerous sectors. It will celebrate collaboration, innovation and progress in population health.
Simon Presswell, CEO of the Dods Group, commented: "Health and care professionals are increasingly looking to work more collaboratively with wider partners to improve health outcomes in their area.”
“Festival of Health will meet a growing demand for an event of this nature and we are excited to have launched this as the UK's first national Population Health management conference and exhibition."
The event will be supported by NHS Providers, a membership organisation for several NHS departments, including ambulance and mental health services.
NHS Providers COO Mark Stevenson said: "We are really pleased to be supporting the first Festival of Health event, which provides a platform for health and care providers across the whole system to come together, share learning and overcome challenges.
"NHS trusts and foundation trusts are playing a central role in driving forward innovative and collaborative care with their local partners. The broad audience at this event is very helpfully also reflective of the fact that the journey to integrated care, improving health outcomes in local populations and empowering people to manage their own health is a shared goal across the NHS, government, local authorities and the wider system."
