NHS 70 conference poster competition 2018


NHS of the future – your vision of the NHS in 30 years’ time. Over the last 70 years the NHS has transformed the health and the wellbeing of the people it serves. It has evolved and innovated to provide the best possible care. Today, the NHS faces tough challenges but there are many opportunities as well.


HEE wants to showcase your thoughts on how the future NHS can meet the challenges it faces today. Fast forward 30 years – what does the nation’s NHS look like?

That’s why we’re inviting anyone who is either employed in health and social care services, in any work area, at any level or if you're a student, to submit an entry for the NHS70 conference poster competition 2018.

Entrants are invited to submit posters as follows:

  • Health and social care staff at any level/ students highlighting what the NHS will look like in 30 years’ time
  • Demonstration of how the NHS will meet the challenge of caring for a growing and aging population
  • Showing how innovation in education can improve patients’ lives in 30 years’ time (this could include clinical improvements, service or treatment pathway innovations, and non-clinical aspects of care – for example improving administrative procedures, facilities and the physical environment, and methods of communication
  • Posters must be titled ‘NHS of the future – my vision of the NHS in 30 years’ time

To enter, please email a digital version of your poster to events@hee.nhs.uk Please note this needs to be of good quality as shortlisted entries will be printed and displayed as an A1 size at HEEs NHS70 conference on 28 June 2018. HEE will be responsible for printing shortlisted posters which will be given to the author after the event and posted to them if they are not attending.

Poster competition terms

The deadline for submitting your poster is noon Friday 15 June. Any late entries will not be accepted.

The winner of the competition will win a breakfast meeting with a person of interest, including HEE Chief Nurse and Interim Regional Director Lisa  Bayliss-Pratt, HEE Director of Education and Quality and National Medical Director Wendy Reid, and HEE Regional Director Laura Roberts to talk through their winning poster and have a mentoring session during breakfast. This meeting will last no more than one hour on a mutually agreed date in 2018. 

Should diary commitments mean a face to face meeting is not possible then a telephone or video conference can be organised.

All shortlisted posters will be judged by a reviewing committee in early June 2018 and the winner of the competition will be informed at this time by email or telephone. 

All shortlisted posters will be displayed at the HEE NHS70 conference.

It is not expected that poster presenters will attend the conference nor may a place necessarily be available due to the limited number of places, and in their absence their poster will be displayed on their behalf by HEE at the NHS70 conference.

Please note the posters may also be published on the HEE website and/or social media channels.
