Leading healthcare conference grows to two days and moves to ExCeL London

The UK Health Show returns for two days on 25-26 September as it grows into its new home of ExCeL London for 2018.

The UK Health Show connects senior healthcare decision makers, influencers and buyers from across the NHS and the entire UK healthcare sector. Its mission is to connect the NHS, private healthcare providers, national bodies, partners and suppliers through thought-provoking and educational content and a trade-show platform focused on the key opportunities and challenges in healthcare today.

In 2018, the UK Health Show will enter its third year following its hugely successful launch in 2016. Born out the Healthcare Efficiency through Technology show (launched in 2011) and Commissioning in Healthcare (launched in 2013) the show brings a rich legacy of being at the forefront of the industry.

This year it will be growing to two days and to reflect its growth plans, moving to its new home of ExCeL London.

Event Director and Head of Healthcare at GovNet Communications, Alexander Rushton, explains: “Through the UK Health Show, we want to celebrate the leaders and the progressiveness, innovation and diversity from across the UK healthcare sector by focusing on four key opportunities and challenges facing the health sector today. These are digital technology, commissioning, procurement and cyber security.

“Having started my career in a Trust, before moving to the NHS Confederation and also spending a year working with the World Health Organization, I’ve seen first-hand the challenges facing the healthcare industry not only in the NHS and UK systems, but also the global systems.

“However, with that comes great opportunity and that is what we promote with the UK Health Show – the opportunity for the whole of the NHS, industry and the wider sector to meet, discuss, connect and find solutions to take advantage of the opportunities for success and overcome the challenges faced today.

“This gives our exhibitors, sponsors and all attendees’ access to the full spectrum of buyers, specifiers, decision makers, influencers and stakeholders in the healthcare sector.”

“We ensure of representation from across the UK giving you access to the full geographic healthcare market. Thanks to this market penetration, you can conduct a years’ worth of ‘on-the- road’ meetings in just two days, saving thousands of pounds and hours of time travelling the UK meeting and entertaining clients.”
