Irish National Health Summit



The National Health Summit is an Irish event that brings together healthcare staff and leaders, policymakers, commentators, and patient groups to learn, network and share knowledge.

Now in its 18th year, the theme for the 2022 event is ‘The impact of Covid-19: Can we disrupt the way that healthcare is organised and delivered?’. It will take place virtually on 8th February.
