Join us at The ICC in Birmingham on Tuesday 1 - Wednesday 2 October, for what we hope to be our biggest conference yet.
Our two day conference will provide a great opportunity for you to learn, network and share with Healthwatch colleagues from across the country.
Booking will be available from July, so keep an eye out for more updates.
Apply for a Network Award
The Healthwatch Network Awards are an opportunity to showcase where you have gone above and beyond to make sure health and social care services meet everybody's needs.
This year, we've made applying for the awards easier. All you'll have to do is include a case study in your annual report that meets an award entry criteria, and then submit it using our online form.
Deadline:Sunday 30 June
Apply to run a session
To make sure that conference is a positive and valuable learning experience, each year we invite you to run conference sessions for other network staff and volunteers.
This year, sessions will be longer, allowing for deeper discussions and greater understanding of topics. The agenda will also offer a broader range of subjects, creating more opportunities for you to share your learning and experiences with each other.
Deadline: Friday 7 June
Apply for a bursary
We aim to provide attendees with maximum value, whilst minimising costs to the Healthwatch network.
While we pay for the cost of running the conference, each Healthwatch attendee is responsible for covering their own accommodation and travel costs.
We know that many Healthwatch have limited resources, so we are offering a bursary scheme for those struggling to cover the cost of attending, to ensure each Healthwatch is given the same opportunity to attend.
