SCW at ConfedExpo 22

This year’s NHS ConfedExpo conference and exhibition was held on 15-16 June 2022 at the ACC in Liverpool with delegates attending in person for the first time in three years. Colleagues across the health and care sector gathered to discuss current topics and challenges and catch up with friends and teammates both old and new.

We led several interactive sessions where experienced practitioners explored, debated, and shared their learning on some pressing topics and challenges in health and care today in our SCW Live Lounge at the stand.

Our themes for the stand linked to those of the conference. For more information on how we can help you in each area visit:
