A major conference to promote leadership among black and minority ethnic nurses and other NHS staff will be held in the autumn.

A major conference to promote leadership among black and minority ethnic nurses and other NHS staff will be held in the autumn.

The NHS Institute for Innovation & Improvement's Breaking Throughconference will take place on Monday October 15 at the Queen Elizabeth II conference centre in London.

The one day conference, which comprises a series of interactive debates and informal breakout sessions, will be chaired by Niall Dickson, Chief Executive of the Kings Fund. Health minister Lord Ara Darzi is expected to speak.

NHS Chief Executive, David Nicholson said: There are still too few BME staff operating at the very highest levels in the NHS, which is totally unacceptable. As such this conference should be a priority date in the calendars of aspiring BME managers.'
