Virtual Wards Clinical Summit

To support the NHS’ ambition to introduce or expand virtual wards across the country, clinical summits offer clinicians involved in delivering virtual wards an opportunity to share and accelerate learning and best practice. This will support services to be developed in safe, effective and experience-based ways.


The first virtual wards clinical summit will be held 29 September 2022 from 12:00-15:30.


These clinical summits are ideal for:

  • Clinicians providing or preparing to implement virtual wards
  • People supporting the implementation of virtual wards including ICS and regionals leads


These clinical summits aim to: 

  • Share the experiences and expertise of teams already successfully delivering virtual wards
  • Build community through connecting clinical leaders and colleagues across all stages of the system for implementation
  • Empower clinical leaders and colleagues to safely implement virtual wards
  • Bring patient and carer voice and experience to centre of the process of change
  • Encourage active and tangible consideration of health inequalities and digital exclusion


For the first clinical summit, speakers will include senior members of NHS at national, regional, system level, and provider level, and leaders in healthcare more broadly.


Agenda to be announced shortly with potential sessions on:

  • Starting a virtual ward
  • Scaling up virtual wards
  • Role of clinical leadership
  • Quality and safety
  • Evidence for virtual wards
  • Workforce skills and competency framework
