Challenge 2020

Challenge 2020

Challenge 2020 is our annual conference dedicated to engagement, involvement and participation within the health sector. To our knowledge, it is the only event of its type in the UK. Whereas others look at the sector’s structures, Challenge 2020 seeks to inform attendees of how they can meaningfully engage with and involve their stakeholders: public, patients and staff.

Since 2016, we’ve lined-up an array of quality speakers and thought-leaders: from The King’s Fund, John Lewis Partnership, Point of Care Foundation, National Voices, Innocent Drinks, Co-operatives UK and the leading institutions of the NHS (NHS Improvement, Care Quality Commission, NHS Confederation, NHS Employers). We’ve also showcased the best examples from local providers and commissioners. Every year, we celebrate their achievements by presenting our MES Engagement Champion Award.

Challenge 2020 is the cornerstone of our thought-leadership activity and ensures we live one of our key values: to constantly Learn, Listen and Innovate.
