The Celtic Manor Resort to host Bevan Commission conference

The 2018 conference will celebrate 70 years of the NHS and explore the future of health and care.

Celebrating 70 years of the NHS, the Bevan Commission International Conference 2018 will take place in Newport on 3 and 4 July.

The conference will welcome over 300 delegates from Wales, the UK and beyond and will act as a fitting tribute to the origins of the NHS in Wales, and to the former maternity hospital which later became the Celtic Manor Resort.

The Bevan Commission, a leading health think tank for Wales, also celebrates 10 years since it was established in 2008. The Commission brings together a group of internationally renowned experts to provide independent, authoritative advice to Welsh Government, NHS Wales and health leaders worldwide.

The conference will reflect upon the origins of the health service, compare devolved health systems across the UK, and discuss how we will ensure that we have a sustainable health and care system which is fit for the future.

It will also showcase a number of innovative ideas and approaches from a variety of speakers, including Bevan Exemplars who have been supported by the Commission to test out their own ideas and to drive and spread change more rapidly across Wales.

"We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Celtic Manor Resort to celebrate 70 years of the NHS and its origins here in Wales," said Helen Howson, director of the Bevan Commission. "The Bevan Commission is committed to upholding the principles of Aneurin Bevan’s prudent and social healthcare system and it is vital that everyone plays their part in this. As a former maternity hospital and a landmark venue for Wales, the Celtic Manor is the perfect place to celebrate this anniversary and look to future health and care innovations emerging across Newport, Wales and beyond."
