Excellence Exchange Sessions include:

  • Health developing social enterprises and 'self-reliant groups'

  • Health Creation outputs and outcomes debate – what, why and how?

  • Health and Wellbeing Hubs – realising the Health Creation potential within pharmacy, nursing and housing

  • Health Creation and the power of digital – the upsides and downsides of digital and an enabler of Health Creation

  • Anchor Institutions – their role in supporting people, communities and their local economy

  • The role of medicines in Health Creation

Following registration, you will be contacted to identify which two Excellence Exchange Sessions you wish to attend.


In addition to the networking with the anticipated 300 attendees, there is also an exhibition area, ideal for learning more from our highly-valued partners, supporters and sponsors.


The Action Summit will also see the launch of a partnership with ITN Productions to produce a news and current affairs-style programme about ‘wellness’.

‘In Search of Wellness’ will celebrate the pioneering work of those both within and around the health and social care sectors who are innovating to improve the nation’s health and wellbeing. The programme will examine novel ways of involving communities, people and patients in creating health and reducing health inequalities, roles for IT-enabled involvement in health and care, better use of medicines in supporting wellness, how peer-groups can drive their own care and recovery, improvements to workforce wellbeing, the economic and educational benefits of a wellness-based approach for communities … and much, much more.

Drawing upon ITN’s 60 year heritage and expertise in storytelling, the programme will play an important role for New NHS Alliance in shaping the communication and ideas of how best to address health inequalities and promote wellness.

For more information: If you have a story to tell, ITN Productions would be delighted to include you in the programme. Please contact Simon Shelley, Head of Industry News at ITN Productions, on 0207 430 4810 or simon.shelley@itn.co.uk to discuss your involvement.


We are also delighted to hosting a live performance of the incredible Hidden Voice - giving a voice to people living with dementia.

Take a look at their ground-breaking work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdDf3HrxJfA

Presented by the acclaimed Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and composer John McHugh, ´Hidden Voice' captures the individual stories of people living with dementia and uses the melodies and rhythms in their speech to create a beautiful and emotional musical experience. As John McHugh explained: “live musicians, film and audio will take the audience into the innermost thoughts of the people on the screen to raise awareness about one of the most misunderstood conditions of our time.
