As part of the NHS’s 70th birthday celebrations, there will be a dedicated ‘NHS70 theatre’ at the Health and Care Innovation Expo in Manchester on 5 and 6 September 2018.
Expo is the biggest NHS-led event in the calendar and includes more than 200 hours of speakers, workshops and sessions exploring the latest developments and innovations across health and social care.
Over the two days, delegates visiting the ‘NHS70 theatre’ will get to meet, and hear from, many of the inspirational people who played a key role in marking the birthday – from retired staff who worked in the NHS on the day it launched to patients who have shared their personal stories of how the NHS saved or changed their lives.
We’ll also hear from leading innovators who will offer a ‘tomorrow’s world view’ of what the NHS will look like when it reaches 100.
In addition, there will be a special screening of the BBC Wales’ To Provide All People, which was produced to mark the 70th anniversary.
The NHS70 theatre will run as follows:
In addition, people visiting the theatre will be able to view exhibitions from the University of Manchester’s ‘NHS at 70: The Story of our Lives’ project and NHS England’s work with Inspiring the Future, an initiative which encourages NHS staff to give school talks.
It’s easy to register to attend Expo.
