Patients across England are being invited to be part of the debate on what lies ahead for the NHS after the general election at Confed17.

A new bursary, covering the cost of attending the NHS Confederation’s flagship annual conference and exhibition, will enable patients and service users to contribute to discussions on the future of the health service alongside its senior leadership.

Five bursaries are available for the conference in June, providing full access to plenary and workshop sessions. The grants will encourage more patient involvement in talks about the future of the NHS at a critical juncture for the health service.

The conference, taking place on 14 and 15 June in Liverpool, will be the first gathering of health and social care leaders following the general election.

Centred on six key themes, it will explore a range of issues including Brexit, service transformation and integration.

Keynote speakers include Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, and the NHS Confederation’s chief executive, Niall Dickson.

Patient representatives are encouraged to submit a bursary application form by 17 May.
