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.
