This was a well organised and well planned day. I was pleased to say it encompassed many different work areas for nurses which meant there was something for most attendees.

Director of Clinical Services, Isabel Hospice

It was a well organized event with brilliant speakers, informed delegates and sponsors. The discussed topics/themes were informative and enlightening. Well-done to the organisers.

Trainee Nursing Associate, Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust

A very engaging conference and one that enabled excellent networking opportunities. The speakers were extremely good and made you think about how you can change practice for the better and enhance the patients journey. Improving on what is already there but remembering the basics. Demystifying the future of Nursing and how we will be working together to ensure the holistic care journey is delivered.

Chief Nurse, BMI Healthcare

Great opportunity to hear the latest developments and progress in nursing, especially the new nurse associate role.

Excellent networking and policy update. Thoroughly enjoyable.

The event overall was really insightful, and I have come away with ideas to implement within my workplace. It also provided networking opportunities and I have already made contact with one of the speakers to look at the evidence presented in more details
