REFLECTIONS: NHS Confed Expo 2023
Darren Kilroy, Medical Director, International at RLDatix, reflects on his time at NHS Confed Expo 2023.
“I attended this years Confed Expo in Manchester where I was delighted to deliver a seminar on the importance of effective workforce management entitled ‘If you want to know the healthcare future, look at its past’.
I reflected back on the first 20 years of the NHS’s existence as part of the “NHS75” event theme and picked out some of the early workforce reports from the 1950s/60s. Even back then, it highlighted the need for effective workforce planning and deployment, and was able to align this to our current challenges in healthcare through the lens of a whole series of subsequent workforce reports in the intervening years.
Thank you to everyone who attended my seminar. It was great speaking to so many people. If you missed the seminar and would like to hear more, feel free to reach out to me via email ([email protected]) or via Twitter (@DrDKilroy)”
Thank you to everyone who came to our session today. I was speechless and humbled to find that a lead author of a seminal report from the 1960s I referenced was….in the audience! What a unique moment. Tomorrow we continue the journey with a discussion of psychological safety. https://t.co/g0KRZt1wrv— Darren Kilroy (@DrDKilroy) June 14, 2023
