Expo 2014 will be a showcase for innovation in the health service

NHS England is to host its biggest event of the year with the Health and Care Innovation Expo 2014.

To be staged on March 3 and 4 at Manchester Central, Expo is expected to attract thousands of delegates, all of whom want to bring about changes in health and care. Keynote speakers will include Ara Darzi, Victor Adebowale, Jane Cummings, Tim Kelsey, and chief executive Sir David Nicholson, as well as medical director Sir Bruce Keogh. As Expo is being staged in Manchester there will also be a special focus on the North, “This is how we are doing it”, featuring a series of case studies of how innovation is developing high quality care for all.

Everyone attending Expo will be a student at the pop-up NHS University, able to build their own bespoke course from a wide range of seminars and workshops.  For more information visit the website http://healthcareinnovationexpo.com/ and follow all the news as it happens on Twitter @NHSExpo  #Expo14NHS
