Leading Together Festival

We are excited to welcome you back to our second Leading Together Festival, taking place throughout July 2022. Building on last year’s success, we have another wide range of sessions built around the theme of the People Promise. This is an opportunity to develop and reflect, to inspire thinking and to learn with colleagues, even take away practical ideas and solutions. All events will be virtual, to be as inclusive as possible.

It was great last year to have so many people from across different organisations, networking and developing together. We hope this year’s festival will once again welcome colleagues from health and social care organisations across our Trust, our ICS and beyond. Wherever you work in care and health we welcome you and encourage you to get involved.

We really looking forward to seeing you during July.
