Leading Change with People and Communities

Tue, 25 Feb 2020

9:45 - 16:15


As part of the new Engagement Practitioners' Network for staff working in health and care, NHS England and NHS Improvement are delighted to invite you to Leading Change with People and Communities, our 2020 spotlight improvement events. These events will be a fabulous opportunity to explore the latest thinking about working in genuine partnership with people and communities. Together we will challenge traditional ways of thinking, share our tools and insights, and generate new ideas for change.

Participants will hear new thinking from radical thinkers and practitioners. Take-away information and resources about practical approaches to improving our work with people and communities. Connect with colleagues to develop our thinking together.

This event will be co-chaired by Brad Gudger (Youth Advisor at NHS England) and Olivia Butterworth, Head of Public Participation (NHS England and Improvement).
