Getting the anniversary celebrations off with an international flavour, the conference is set to take place at Earls Court Exhibition Centre from 1 to 3 July.
Three leading organisations representing UK and world healthcare are joining forces to stage the conference of a lifetime.
They are the NHS Confederation, which represents UK health authorities, and trusts; the Institute of Health Services Management (IHSM), representing individual healthcare managers; and the International Hospital Federation, representing healthcare institutions worldwide.
Hosting presentations by some of the principal leaders and thinkers in healthcare from around the world, the conference will also feature interactive multi-media events, awards, satellite events and a historic and futuristic exhibition covering the last five decades of the UK's favourite institution.
A key feature of the event is a large trade exhibition, illustrating the essential partnership between quality healthcare and suppliers of goods and services, and providing unique opportunities for networking with colleagues from the UK and all over the world.
The conference will be both a nostalgic trip into the past and a bold look into the future.
