About the 2021 conference

 

The impact of the digital surge in health and care on the patient experience
Keynote panel for the ‘The impact of the digital surge in health and care on the patient experience’

 

After a two-year hiatus, the Macmilllan professionals community reunited for a two-day conference on 2 & 3 November to connect, share best practice and reflect on their experience and learnings from the pandemic.

For the first time ever, Macmillan professionals could participate in the event in a way that suited them – either in person at the venue in Manchester or from a behind a screen at home or work. Through live stream keynotes and interactive sessions, the event was a great opportunity for Macmillan professionals to reconnect with peers, learn valuable insight to support them in their roles, and understand the vital role they play in helping Macmillan do whatever it takes for people living with and affected by cancer.

A highlight of the event is the Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards ceremony, where the winners of our prestigious awards are announced. This year if felt more important than ever to recognise and celebrate the important work of Macmillan professionals amidst the challenges of the pandemic, and we were thrilled to announce 14 winners across 4 categories.
