Leadership Forum 2016 - Lean On Me

The 2016 HefmA Leadership Forum will be held from the 19th - 20th May 2016 at the Telford International Centre.

The 2016 theme Lean on Me; Compassion, Culture & Compliance will cover a myriad of topics including looking into the experiences of the patient, the importance of forming strong partnerships and show how a strong management team can shape and lead the way for others.

The 2016 leadership forum will be held at the Telford International Centre. The excellent transport links for rail, air and road make attending easy for conference delegates and exhibition visitors. New government policies make it a necessity for every member of the NHS to have a thirst for knowledge. This is a ideal environment for you to promote your organisation and help to deliver solutions for healthcare professionals.
