The Integrating Health and Social Care Conference 2022

The Convenzis Integrating Health and Social Care Conference is a showcase of best practices from teams across the NHS and provides a platform to meet and engage with sector-leading guest speakers, forward-thinking innovators and 200+ peers from across the NHS.

We are living through the greatest challenge our health and care system has ever faced, yet, even in crisis conditions, everyone working in our health and care system has continued to deliver excellence. Critically, collaboration across health and social care has accelerated at a pace showing what we can do when we work together, flexibly, adopt new technology focused on the needs of the patient, and set aside bureaucratic rules. The Integration and Innovation White Paper.

Integrated care is about giving people the support they need, joining up across local councils, the NHS, and other partners. It removes traditional divisions between hospitals and family doctors, between physical and mental health, and between NHS and council services.

Transforming the delivery of health and social care is needed to address the growing pressures due to funding constraints and the increasing complexity of needs for services. In an attempt to address these issues, various programs to integrate health services have been developed internationally, including, The World Health Organisation Framework on integrated people-centred health service and the NHS Long-Term Plan.

Since April 2021, all parts of England have been covered by one of 42 ICSs, some systems have already been working as ICSs for a number of years, while others have evolved from STPs more recently. In all cases, the ways of working and governance structures underpinning ICSs remain a work in progress.

Our conference aims to share strategic advice and best practice as the ICS programmes are scaled up. Our event series focuses on 3 key areas including:

  • Developing strategies around digital technologies and estates
  • Supporting collaborative working
  • Strengthening collaborative relationships and trust between partner organisations and their leaders

Join us at the Integrated Care Summit as we continue the debate on the latest government plans to integrate health and social care providers to help improve healthcare for all.

The 2022 Summit provides a timely platform for service providers to meet up alongside NHS stakeholders to help drive improved collaboration and interoperability across the UK health system.

Virtual wards allow patients to get the care they need at home safely and conveniently, rather than being in hospital.

Virtual wards are already in place in many parts of the country, and the NHS is expanding this, rolling out more virtual wards across England over the next two years.

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 “
