The HSCN Summit provides a unique opportunity for all those who are involved in the migration from N3 and for those who are charged with creating and developing better links and routes for information sharing. This is your chance to engage with many of the organisations that will be delivering the new HSCN services. Find out what your options are for migrating from N3, when you can move away from N3 and quiz the suppliers face to face on why their HSCN services deliver the best value for money.

We invite all those with an interest in and responsibility for migration to HSCN to join with 150 plus of their peers from all areas of public service.

Wednesday 22nd November, One Great George Street, London SW1P 3AA

2017 is set to become a pivotal year for NHS property professionals. It is a year that will see CHP, NHS Property Services and other as yet unnamed agencies transition into a new single, central property body.

It is a year that will see the beginning of the implementation of the Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) by each of the 44 geographical 'footprints'.

It is a year in which pressures upon health and care services are forecast by many observers to reach new heights and crucially, it is the year when the Naylor Report recommendations start to be put into effect.

NHS Property 2017 (the sixth year of the annual event) will provide the perfect opportunity for circa 250 senior NHS personnel who have an interest in and responsibility for property and land, to come together with their peers to hear from the senior level policy makers, strategists and solution providers that the event always attracts.

Tuesday 9th January, Cloth Hall Court, Leeds LS1 2HT

NHS Digital is supporting the mandatory roll-out of free WiFi access for patients and staff in all NHS hospitals and secondary care in 2018. A secure, stable and reliable WiFi capability will allow health and care professionals to deliver patient care more easily and to use mobile devices as part of that care delivery, while patients and the public will be able to download health apps, browse the internet and look up health and care information.

NHS delegates are invited to attend this one day programme of presentations, panel discussions and interactive dialogues. Project and IT leads in Trusts and secondary care can expect to find out more about implementing NHS WiFi and the standards and requirements that they must meet to roll-out WiFi.

This free to attend* conference will benefit those that have yet to implement WiFi as well as those who have already started the process; delegates will have the opportunity to attend sessions hosted by NHS England and NHS Digital, engage with solution providers and network with their peers from across the NHS.

Given the tight timescales involved for both the programme and the conference we strongly advise that you book your free place* today.


*Free places are only available to NHS or public sector personnel

Thursday 1st February 2018, QEII Centre, London SW1P 3EE

In it's 13th year The Government Property 2018 conference will once again feature senior figures from Cabinet Office's Government Property Unit along with high profile speakers from a range of other government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector.

The anticipated 300+ delegates will benefit from a closer understanding of government's estate strategy and will learn more about the funding options available which will affect the future of publicly owned and managed land and property.

Ideally suited to the interests and responsibilities of all public sector property professionals the key subject matter will examine the practical steps to realising the new look estate, which will kick start regeneration, encourage housebuilding, break down barriers to cross sector working and deliver real financial benefit at local, regional and national levels.

Main themes which will be explored in the 2018 conference will be:

- The Land Release Fund: a co-operative programme between DCLG, LGA and GPU, designed to encourage release of land by local authorities for house building purposes
- One Public Estate: the latest iteration of OPE is closely related to the Land Release Fund and continues to attract bids for funding
- The Hubs Programme: very much a pillar of government's property strategy and increasingly in the news, ie Canary Wharf, Liverpool, Cardiff etc
- The New Property Model: progress on the centralisation of the government estate

Government Property 2018 will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to hear from and question expert speakers from across the public and private sectors, engage with solution providers and to build and renew networks with their peers. We look forward to welcoming friends old and new.

Medical devices of all types are now routinely being supplied with Wi-Fi connectivity or a LAN port as standard. Clearly, technology has an ever increasing part to play in making these devices more efficient,  effective and safer in the treatment of patients. However, it is also evident that there are security risks associated with malicious interference in their operation, the integrity of the data that they produce and consequential risk to other IT systems on the network.



Medical Device Connectivity and Interoperability: Managing risk, realising benefits will give valuable insights into: 



  • How connected medical devices and the systems they are connected to can be protected from attack

  • How connected medical devices and the systems they are connected to can be protected from in-house misuse

  • How to safely transfer patient data from medical devices using Patient Data Management Systems or to a Central Monitoring System

  • The importance of increased inter-agency working between suppliers, clinical engineers, IT departments and end users in order to understand and manage risks

  • New technological developments

  • ISO 80001-1 and what it means

  • MHRA guidance

  • Network Inventory Vulnerabillity - do you know what is connected to your network?

  • Changing staff behaviour
Join us to hear insights and best practice case studies from healthcare experts, network with your peers and meet with solution providers.
