This year’s programme will provide opportunities to focus on Pandemic Recovery and Reform for the Future. Over the past year, NHS Scotland and its partners across health and social care have once again risen to the many challenges and pressures during this unprecedented time in dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

Pandemic Recovery and Reform for the Future

Captioning at the Event

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Plenary and Mini-Plenary sessions will include live captions on the main stage for our delegates who are deaf, suffer from hearing loss or for those who would find captioning useful.

If delegates require captions in any of the other sessions (Parallel, Spotlight or In Conversation), this must be requested at the point of registration.

When registering, there will be an opportunity to request live captions for bookable sessions.  Delegates will then receive instructions on how to access these on the day.

Please note that any requests for personal captions must be made by Friday 3 June 2022.


We’re delighted to be introducing a number of new features at this year’s Event, all of which will serve to enrich your overall delegate experience, and take advantage of finally being able to come together again – to network and share new learning and innovation.

  • Experience Day Monday 20 June – Delegates are invited to attend our very first Experience Day.  The NHS Scotland Event, in partnership with NHS Grampian, have created a number of exciting and interactive sessions for delegates looking to find out more about the incredible and innovative work that is going on across NHS Grampian. Delegates must book in advance in order to attend. 
  • Lord Provost Civic Reception Tuesday 21 June - The Lord Provost of Aberdeen will be hosting a Civic Reception for delegates attending the NHS Scotland Event on Tuesday 21 June.  The reception will take place from 5pm – 6pm in the exhibition hall at the P&J Live. All delegates are invited to attend (there is no requirement to book in advance).
