The HEFMA Leadership Forum returns to Milton Keynes for 2022!
The theme, ‘Managing the Best Patient Outcome’ was chosen in 2019 for our next Leadership Forum as it reflects what our Estates and Facilities professionals do every day of their working life. COVID-19 has forced the postponement of our flagship annual event, twice now, but in planning for 2022, this theme is more relevant than ever.
The pandemic has not halted the requirement for the NHS to move towards healthcare systems rather than individual organisations working in silos. If anything, it has highlighted the need for this shift and accelerated the progress.
It has changed the way we work, probably for ever. With more flexible working, the benefits of virtual meetings and wider use of technology, the challenges that Estates and Facilities were already tackling concerning the use of the NHS estate have moved on rapidly, such as re-purposing space and transforming the location and delivery of services.
The pandemic has also raised awareness of the importance of the role played by Estates and Facilities professions in maintaining a safe and clean environment within which the best patient care can be provided.
Today, it is more clear than ever that Estates and Facilities are a vital part of managing the route to the best patient outcome.
This will be an exciting, informative and rewarding event.
