The NHS Radiology Conference North 2023

The NHS Radiology Conference series provides a safe and secure platform for NHS imaging professionals to meet with peers, share insights and listen to live guest presentations delivered by sector-leading speakers and innovators. Delegates can expect to benefit from live keynote presentations from UK policymakers, meet-the-supplier sessions, live Q&A time and much more.

As the NHS continues to adapt to the changing healthcare landscape, it is important for managers and leaders to stay up-to-date on the latest developments and best practices in radiology. This conference brings together leading experts in the field to discuss key trends and innovations that are shaping the future of NHS radiology.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the use of AI and machine learning in radiology, the adoption of digital technologies, the expansion of telemedicine, and the increased focus on patient experience. Through interactive sessions, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, attendees will be able to exchange ideas and insights with their peers and explore practical ways to implement these innovations in their own organizations.

There have been several recent developments in ultrasound technology that are enabling more accurate and detailed imaging, such as 3D and 4D ultrasound. There are also new portable and handheld ultrasound devices that are making it easier for clinicians to perform examinations at the bedside or in other clinical settings.

At this conference, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest advances in ultrasound technology and how they are being used to improve patient care in the NHS. Through case studies and hands-on demonstrations, attendees will be able to see the capabilities of these technologies first hand and explore ways to incorporate them into their own practice.

Convenzis events are highly regarded for their ability to drive strategic level change and transformation within the healthcare industry. Our events bring together senior healthcare leaders and decision-makers from across the NHS and wider healthcare sector, with the aim of identifying and implementing innovative approaches to address the most pressing challenges facing the industry today.

Katherine Jakeman
Quality Improvement Partner
RCR/CoR

Quality improvement can dynamically change your service improving it for both staff and patients, however it can feel like there is a heavy resource burden to get started and build momentum. People often resist quality improvement as they worry about change, and people resist change when they can’t see the benefitsThis session will outline the benefits we have observed in services, with real world examples and why QI is not all about change.

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!
