About the conference

Leaders in Healthcare returns to Liverpool for another inspiring conference. Produced by FMLM and BMJ, the event is for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and all healthcare professionals and managers involved in delivering and managing care.

Leaders in Healthcare showcases the best in healthcare management and clinical leadership from across the UK, and welcomes key speakers from around the world to hear viewpoints and success stories from other healthcare systems and beyond to understand how lessons learned in their industries can apply to the healthcare model.

The programme encompasses all aspects of healthcare leadership, from how to tackle the challenges facing the profession to how we can engage better with patients, nurture future leaders and support staff. It focuses on leadership at all levels, from career advice for those looking to take on a leadership role, to discussion around how those in management positions can really make a difference to the key issues surrounding the medical profession today.
