All out for USS

Health educators' conference

UCU is working closely with our colleagues within the health unions with whom we have joint membership arrangements.

As part of this we organised a conference on the future of health education.

22 April
Central London

Background paper: A key issues paper: underpinning the future of health professional education in the UK [389kb]

This conference provided a forum for a key stakeholder group to engage in that debate around the following issues:

  • why there is a need for change in the delivery of healthcare (Professor Lord Darzi has been invited to address the conference)
  • the financial backdrop to these changes (Professor John Appleby from the King's Fund has agreed to attend)
  • workforce impact (panel discussion: contributions from health unions)
  • the effect on health educators (UCU)
  • working collectively to achieve our aims.
