NHS Workforce Conference 2022

“Convenzis is one of the best event organisations I ever came across. Guess the secret is that it is a family business. Short lines of communication, quick solutions and always an eye on the topic, the speakers and the auditorium … oh, and remarkably fair prices for the provided content. Keep up the spirit, guys!” Medical University of Innsbruck

In 2019 NHS England released the first details of the highly anticipated NHS People Plan (formally Workforce Implementation Plan) which has been produced with 5 key themes:

  • Make the NHS the best place to work: We must make the NHS an employer of excellence – valuing, supporting, developing and investing in our people.
  • Improve our leadership culture: Positive, compassionate and improvement focused leadership creates a culture that delivers better care. We need to improve our leadership culture nationally and locally.
  • Prioritise urgent action on nursing shortages: There are shortages across a wide range of NHS staff groups, However, the most urgent challenge is the current shortage of nurses. We need to act now to address this.
  • Develop a workforce to deliver 21st-century care: We will need to grow our overall workforce, but growth alone will not be enough. We need a transformed workforce with a more varied and richer skill mix, new types of roles and different ways of working, ready to exploit the opportunities offered by technology and scientific innovation to transform care and release more time for care.
  • Develop a new operating model for the workforce: We need to continue to work collaboratively and be clear about what needs to be done locally, regionally and nationally, with more people planning activities undertaken by local integrated care systems (ICSs).

Join us as we focus on the plan's development and the outcomes already being shared from the plan’s initial rollout.The event will share the latest policy updates from key organisations including NHS England and Improvement and NHS providers, adjacent to this you will hear from some key teams across the NHS that have been implementing new models of working within their organisations and the benefits to both staff and patients.

Join us at NHS Workforce Conference 2022 as we discuss how these initiatives have been driven over 2021, into 2022 and the improvements that have been made.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Pascoe Healthcare

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
