Nursing Times Deputies’ Congress

25-26 April 2017, Horizon Leeds Conference Centre

As Deputy Directors of Nursing and Assistant Chief Nurses you are uniquely placed, both close to the board and with a clear view of the workforce to affect positive change.

The annual Nursing Times Deputies’ Congress provides a single opportunity to get together, share best practice and combine your wealth of knowledge and experience to formulate strategies to tackle common issues.

With agency caps and the proposed removal of bursaries adding to recruitment worries and the constant pressure to cut cost but maintain patient safety and quality, there are some big challenges to overcome at present. Through insightful presentations, interactive panel sessions, knowledge-sharing and facilitated group work the Nursing Times Deputies’ Congress 2016 agenda will tackle:

  • The next nursing strategy and how, as deputies, you can influence it
  • Recruitment, retention, education and the workforce of the future
  • Efficiency, vanguards and Lord Carter’s review
  • Patient safety and what we’ve really learned from the Francis Report
  • Improving patient flow across the entire health economy
  • Plus we will look at your own roles, personal development and what comes after a deputyship

Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to network with your peers and solve common challenges.
