The 18th National Health Summit

Online, Tuesday 8th February

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the nation’s health and the effective delivery of care. It has cost lives. Healthcare staff have worked long and stressful hours tending to the ill and dying in an emotional vacuum where a patient’s family and friends have had to stay away. Telehealth has become commonplace, with care providers offering or even requiring a telehealth consultation instead of a walk-in appointment.

Has this major global healthcare crisis – with some negative and some positive disruptions to the delivery of care – given us a once in a lifetime chance to undo decades of health policy failure? With recent setbacks to our major reform programme, Sláintecare, could this kind of existential crisis allow healthcare leaders to put the reform programme back on the right path?

What have we learned that we might use to disrupt healthcare for the greater good? Can we shape a new and better normal? Can Covid lead to a better healthcare system… if we want it to?

This is the major theme of the 2022 National Health Summit. Now going into its 18th year, this summit has been a key event for senior leaders within the entire health eco-system. It’s a forum that brings together the full range of stakeholders in our public health service to learn, network and share knowledge and experience. It’s where healthcare staff and leaders, policymakers, commentators and patient groups meet to constructively challenge current ways of thinking and offer new perspectives.
