Prof Dame Carol Black“This year the conference will look more loosely at a number of emerging issues of increasing importance. The first is the health of older workers. It is crucial that people are enabled to extend their working lives by minimising the impact of disorders associated with ageing. In a complementary sense we must also focus on the health and wellbeing of health and social care staff - the largest public service group in this country.

The formal evidence base on what works well is not yet strong, but the evidence from experience and thoughtful opinion is becoming clear. It is also clear that leadership in creating a supportive culture is a key factor in ensuring staff wellbeing. Without leadership at every level a crucial factor in the effort to improve health and wellbeing - staff engagement - will be missing. I hope that the leading thinkers and doers who attend the conference will share their experience and knowledge, bringing it to an even wider audience.”
