Neonatal Conferences

Our neonatal conferences provide the chance for health professionals supporting neonatal units to come together, share ideas, and hear from experts in the field about the latest research on improving standards of care for the most vulnerable babies and their families.

The 2021 Neonatal Conference will take place online this year on 15th June 2021 from 9am-5pm, featuring an exciting lineup of informative talks, interactive Q&A and panel sessions that showcase the innovations of organisations and individuals working in the fields of neonatal care, infant feeding and relationship building.
