We’re delighted to invite you to join us for the first virtual All-Wales AHP Festival of Innovation, extending a warm welcome to AHPs and healthcare science colleagues across Wales.

Running over three days, it will be a series of live and pre-recorded webinars, learning sessions, panels and discussions – as well as the chance to join the Advancing Healthcare Awards virtual ceremony at the end of day three, where we’ll celebrate the work of AHPs and healthcare scientists across the UK.

This virtual festival gives staff the opportunity to shape their own event agenda, accessing sessions of interest to them without having to attend the whole three days, keeping time spent away from practice during the festival to a minimum at this challenging time.

The sessions will be available on-demand for up to a month after the event so participants can catch up and revisit anything that they missed. The festival is a timely chance for staff to share good practice and learn from others, beneficial for their own continuing professional development, the development of the service and ultimately the care of their patients.
