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 18th January 2018, QEII Centre London SW1P 3EE


The single supplier, centrally managed 10 year NHS contract for network services known as N3 has now been replaced by a new NHS Digital led network, HSCN (Health and Social Care Network). The new network went live earlier in 2017 and health and public sector bodies will be able to procure a range of connectivity services through a new CCS DPS (dynamic purchasing system) to allow them to access HSCN. These include both managed and unmanaged connections, covering terrestrial, wireless, and satellite technology and a variety of flexible bandwidth options.

 In addition, “supplementary components” of the DPS could include cloud services and consultancy.
In light of this new mandatory network change and procurement route, NHS Digital is inviting network decision makers from the health and wider public sectors to the official HSCN Summit which will be hosted at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster on January 18th    2018.

The event will see key figures from NHS Digital and CCS presenting to the assembled delegates and on hand throughout the day for delegate interaction. Also present will be leading HSCN compliant suppliers demonstrating their HSCN solutions/services and who will also available throughout the course of the event to answer your queries.
 
If you wish to hear the latest HSCN updates and guidelines, view current case studies, liaise with your peers, meet with a large number of HSCN compliant suppliers or simply address any issues that you may have around your own transition to the HSCN then register now for your FREE public sector place at the official HSCN Summit 2018.

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

In its 13th year the Government Property 2018 conference will once again feature senior figures from a range of 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 house building, 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 council's view of the co-operative programme between DCLG, LGA and GPU, designed to encourage release of land by local authorities for house building purposes
- One Public Estate: a private sector view of the latest iteration
- Property assets supporting service transformation
- The Ministry of Defence Estate: the management of its property and land assets and impacts on the wider public 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.
