Join AbbVie and the College of Medicine at our conference exploring how to make the NHS more sustainable.

The event follows up on the report that AbbVie and the College of Medicine published last year “Patient, manager, expert: individual” which looked at initiatives to help make our healthcare system more sustainable. This conference will bring together the leading experts and practitioners to discuss and share their best practice and thinking about how to do this.

We are inviting an audience of decision-makers, influencers and practitioners who can help ensure that the ideas and improvements discussed at the conference are followed up, spread and implemented. The focus will be on tangible improvements that can make a real impact on developing a more Sustainable Healthcare​ service for everyone.


Our speakers include a wide range of experts from health and care who are helping to set the agenda and are involved in turning this agenda into reality. They include:

  • Mary Baker
  • Michael Seres
  • Lynda Thomas
  • Dr Michael Dixon
  • Martin McShane – NHS England Domain Leader
  • Mike Barlow
  • Professor David Peters
  • Julia Tabrehan
  • Samantha Jones
  • Junaid Bajwa
  • Carrie Grant – Carer and inspirational speaker
  • Alisa Bosworth – Founder and Chief Executive of the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society
  • Tim Kelsey – National Director for Patients and Information NHS England

This conference is organised and funded by AbbVie and in partnership with the College of Medicine and will be facilitated by Mike Farrar, former CE of the NHS Confederation.

As well as hear from our expert speakers, delegates will have the opportunity to input into four different panel discussions, take part in our special debate from the floor and network with their peers.
