The Radiology Conference 2022

The Convenzis Radiology Conference is the leading event covering NHS imaging and radiology updates. Over 1200 senior delegates have already tuned in to live sessions and shared insights with peers across the UK.

NHS England and Improvement recently set out initial plans to develop and implement collaborative imaging networks on a national basis across England with the aim to improve the quality of patient care and to provide imaging professionals with improved career progression opportunities.

By utilising the data from the NHS England and NHS Improvement national imaging data collections, the NHS can begin to provide services based on geographical patient flows and provide services in these areas including, cancer, stroke, major trauma, acute cardiology, and maternity services, this also provides an opportunity for skill mix, procurement for capital equipment, outsourcing, and shared capacity, and demand between imaging networks.

Adjacent to this, plans are being drawn up for imaging diagnostic ‘one-stop shops’ that will provide a base away from hospital settings so that patients can receive life-saving checks close to their homes.

Our upcoming event will provide the NHS Imaging community with a timely platform to listen, learn and share insights based on these new national imaging strategies.

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 “
