Changing Healthcare: Learning from lasting change in the NHS

Join us from 2 to 6 November for this free week-long interactive digital conference. We’ll explore past cases of widespread, lasting change in healthcare and how we can learn from them.


If you’d like to join any of these events, please register for the conference below and we’ll be in touch with further details.


What is the conference about?

Covid-19 has shown that the NHS can change with speed and impact. Now the challenge is to make that change sustainable. How can previous cases of lasting, successful large-scale change in healthcare help us maintain these latest innovations and transformations?

Join us for a free week-long conference exploring how we can best learn from the past in order to create and sustain a better healthcare system in the future.

Who is it for?

This conference is open to anyone interested and involved in sustaining large-scale change in the NHS, including:

  • policy makers
  • strategy and transformation leads
  • service managers
  • researchers
  • clinicians
  • patients
  • healthcare professionals
  • government workers.

Why should people get involved?

Participants will:

  • learn about key examples of large-scale change in healthcare
  • hear about the experience and learning from those involved in these changes, including the challenges faced and how these were overcome
  • discuss how to apply this learning for sustaining change in our current context.

What’s happening?

The conference will take place online between 2–6 November 2020. Read the programme of events and select which of them you’d like to join when you register.

What about other examples of successful change?

We chose these three case studies because they met certain criteria. But we definitely expect to learn from other examples too.

We also chose one other case study, the success of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). We kicked off the Changing Healthcare programme with this back in the days of face to face events – you can read up on this or watch our webinar.

This conference sounds great! Who’s behind it?

The Changing Healthcare programme has been commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement and the Department of Health and Social Care (Research Programmes). Kaleidoscope is delivering it in partnership with Health Services Research UK.
