Our Annual conference and exhibition returns on 8-9 October in Manchester and the full programme has just gone live.

This year’s conference promises to be another exciting and thought-provoking event. So, to whet your appetite, here are a few of the speakers I’m most looking forward to hearing from at Manchester Central.

Don’t forget to check out the Annual Conference and Exhibition website to view the full programme.

Dr Ben Goldacre, Evidence-Based Medicine DataLab, University of Oxford

As we head towards implementation of the NHS long term plan, digital transformation is high on the agenda.

Dr Ben Goldacre is a best-selling author, broadcaster, campaigner, medical doctor and academic who runs the EBMdataLab in the University of Oxford, building live tools to create and use data more effectively in healthcare and academia. You’ll hear Ben speak about transforming services into one cohesive user experience and improving access for NHS and social care professionals.

If you want to know how the NHS can harness the latest digital technology to positively benefit patients and staff, Ben’s session will be well worth attending.

Isabel Hardman, assistant editor, The Spectator

Isabel joins us in our plenary session on day two with a session titled ‘Playing a critical role in prevention and early intervention’. Isabel will share her personal experiences of living with depression and using mental health services, exploring how families and carers can be supported and involved, and how services can develop to work better for those who use them.

Make sure you catch this session to hear how providers will contribute to the NHS long term plan’s ambition to deliver successful early intervention and save 500,000 lives over the next ten years. There will be plenty of enlightening case studies and lively debate.

Prerana Issar, chief people officer for the NHS, NHS England and Improvement

Prerana will join a panel to explore how leaders can work to embed a culture of compassion, inclusion, and collaboration, to help meet the challenges faced by the health service. Drawing on her experience beyond the NHS, Prerana will point to the common features of good leadership, and how these impact on the delivery of care.

Donna Lamb, director of nursing and non-medical professionals, Hounslow and Richmond Community NHS Trust

The challenges facing trusts rated ‘requires improvement’ by Care Quality Commission (CQC) are often complex and long-standing. Achieving a ‘good’ rating at the next inspection shows the board and staff have made real progress right across the organisation.

Donna Lamb joins speakers from the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust (all of which have recently achieved 'good' CQC ratings after previously being rated as 'requires improvement') on a panel to share their improvement strategies.

This session will look at how they strengthened their trusts’ strategic aims and their governance frameworks as well as improving relationships with staff and local stakeholders.

Will Warburton, director of improvement, The Health Foundation

Will Warburton will join Dame Jackie Daniel from Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Siobhan Moran from Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust to explore how to hardwire quality improvement into your trust’s culture.

They will outline what strategic, organisational approaches to quality improvement look like in practice, including the investments in infrastructure, staff capability and culture that are required.

Siobhan and Jackie, who have made quality improvement part of their trusts’ DNA, will explore the evidence on building improvement capability and describe steps of the improvement journey that trusts must go on to put in place an organisation-wide approach.
