Innovating through backlogs conference: The NHS Surgery Conference 2022

Surgical innovation has an essential role in surgical practice. Over the last 50 years, in particular, innovations have improved patient outcomes, and reduced complication rates and length of hospital stay, all while decreasing morbidity and mortality. Of course, this carries risks without proper evaluation, governance and training.

We are in truly exciting times for NHS innovation, the recent pandemic has provided the perfect catalyst for innovation scale-up, and surgery departments are not missing out on the party.

The Royal College of Surgeons recently published their Future of Surgery blueprint which provides an exciting look at the technology and services being implemented across surgery departments and the impact it is having on staff and patients alike.

The plans identify 4 core technologies that will drive this future surgical landscape: Minimally invasive surgery, Imaging (AR/VR), Big data/ Genomics and Specialist interventions.

These advancements in technology are timely as the NHS faces its biggest backlog in planned surgery to date, the number of patients awaiting treatment hit a record high of 4.46 million in November 2020.

Our upcoming NHS Surgery Conference 2021: Innovating through backlogs will provide a platform for NHS based surgeons to listen and learn about the new policies and best practices while networking and sharing insights with NHS based and international peers.

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
