The NHS Practitioner Health Programme in association with Healthcare Conferences UK are pleased to announce the International Practitioner Health Summit 2022, which will focus on Hope and Healing beyond Covid-19.

Open to all healthcare professionals, this hybrid CPD certified conference will welcome delegates from across the world attending face to face and remotely. Again, as with the 1st award winning conference our speaker line up is exceptional. The medical authors, Rachel Clarke and Adam Kay, will be talking about their Covid experiences. England’s Chief Nursing Officer will also share her experiences and those of her profession who have worked so hard on our behalf during the pandemic. Breakout sessions for all delegates will cover topics including: International treatment models and responses, the epidemiology of distress, mental health outcomes for distressed doctors, and happy workplaces for trainees. For those who attend face to face you will be able to access an extended choice of wonderful workshops and plenty of spaces to come together. 

“The conference will help heal the wounds of the last two extraordinary years and help us understand what we have collectively been through and prepare us for the future. Hope is in the air.”

The Wounded Healer Play 
Presented by Doctors in Distress and playwright Brian Daniels. Part of the Doctors in Distress Restore creativity project in partnership with The Bigger Picture.

It’s not just Doctors who are in distress but particularly during the pandemic, all of those engaged in professional healthcare have endured the sharp end of professional and personal pressure. Where can they go for emotional support? A new play, from Doctors in Distress by the award-winning writer Brian Daniels and inspired by Clare Gerada’s book ‘Beneath the White Coat’ will be an opportunity to explore through a new piece of drama the personal stories and journeys of a group of healthcare professionals as they struggle to keep their personal and professional lives on course.

The play will take place after the conference on Thursday 17th March at 5.30pm, at The General College of Practitioners in London Euston (On-site delegates can book to attend free of charge via the Eventbrite link that will be sent on confirmation of your conference place)
