Celebrating Admin Conference 2022

Date 12/09/2022
Time 10:15 – 15:30
Venue Lecture Theatre 3, Education Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham

UHB’s Admin Week is dedicated to recognising and celebrating the work of the many admin staff who work across our hospitals and services. Often described as the backbone of the NHS, the work of admin staff work touches most, if not all, areas of our Trust.

During the week, which will run from 12 to 16 September, there will be a number of events just for admin staff, that will be held virtually and in person. The events include a career clinic and well-being talks, as well as the much-anticipated award ceremony for UHB’s Celebrating Admin Awards, which will take place on 16 September.

Admin staff are being invited to book their places for the events now as spaces are limited and we are working on a first come, first served basis.
