Chair’s Welcome to Conference

We are incredibly excited to be holding our first fully in-person Annual Professional Conference since the pandemic. Fittingly the theme is Celebrating our professions: seizing the future. It’s all about you, and helping you to get the best out of practice and your career, despite the challenges that exist.

Health visitors, school nurses, community nursery nurses, students and all CPs in practice or academia, will get to hear from leading speakers on cutting-edge topics. These will include pressing workforce issues – now and looking forwards, innovation in practice, safeguarding, the cost of living, and practitioner wellbeing.

There will also be an awards evening to recognise and celebrate your hard work, and plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues, professionals in related fields and relevant organisations. Attending the event will also contribute towards your CPD and revalidation.

For developments as they happen, keep an eye on the Community Practitioner social media channels, and visit this website for regular updates.

It promises to be an inspirational event and we can’t wait to welcome you. Now all you need to do is book! Find all the details below…
