Well I think we have just about recovered from the NHS Confederation Conference! I hope you got a chance to meet some of my colleagues who were in Liverpool over the three days (Tim Winn, Jog Hundle, Dawn Brathwaite, Jill Mason, Duncan Astill, Fiona Payne, Wesley Hall and Chris Simpson). An interesting conference as always made more so by the fact it was the first since the 1 April 2013 shake-up and also Sir David Nicholson's first speech since news broke of his departure from NHS England. Many delegates were also talking about Dr Steve Peters, Consultant Psychiatrist and Head of Sports Psychology at UK Athletics, and our "inner chimp". For those of you who were not able to attend, some of the speeches are on the NHS confed website.
