Listen, read and watch sessions from our first virtual annual conference online, whenever suits you.

My visual 49769214The King’s Health Partners annual conference took place on the 13 and 14 October. This landmark conference saw the launch of our new five-year plan – ‘Delivering better health for all through high impact innovation’.

Through presentations from our diverse range of speakers working in academia, healthcare, community groups, and the wider public sector, as well as thoughtful questions from the audience, our plans to drive real benefit to our patients and communities were demonstrated throughout the conference. Thank you to all our attendees, panellists and speakers for driving such valuable discussions based on our five-year plan.

This was our first annual conference to take place virtually, and as you know there were some technical issues. However, all the sessions have been recorded as they were intended to be aired and without any disruption, so you can view the complete and accurate recordings.

You can view the full agenda for our two-day event online. If you were unable to attend or want to catch up on any sessions that you missed, you can watch them all in your own time, on demand.
