About the conference

NICE 2018: Improving health, improving lives packs 15 hours of content into just one day and includes:

  • renowned keynote speakers, including conference host, clinician and broadcaster Dr Phil Hammond
  • case studies from the frontline of quality improvement
  • plenary debates on the big issues facing healthcare in the UK
  • super-fast ‘lightning learning’ talks on everything from Devo Manc to cancer drugs, quality improvement, and apps and wearables.

The NICE bursary scheme

Patient, carer, service user and voluntary organisations and Healthwatches, have crucial roles to play in answering the questions that the conference will consider.

The NICE bursary scheme gives the opportunity for those organisations who otherwise may not have been able to attend to take part in that conversation. The NICE bursary offers a 1-day delegate pass for the conference, worth £149.

    Who can apply?

    • National patient, carer, service user and voluntary organisations.
    • Local and regional Healthwatch organisations.
