Sharing good practice and innovation. If you are interested in showcasing local innovation, such as how you may have used the benchmarking data for service improvement, please contact Emma Pruce. Previously, we have welcomed: Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, who spoke about their Home Reporting trial for our Radiology conference; Northampton General Hospital, who shared their Outstanding GEM initiatives, as rated by CQC; Greater Manchester Hospital Pharmacy Transformation Collaborative and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, who explored the subject of collaboration across STPs to reduce variation. We welcome speakers from all regions to provide their local perspective on health service delivery.
There is also an opportunity to exhibit at our events. In the past, we have welcomed national bodies such as the British Geriatric Society, the Royal College of Radiologists, and Mind. This year we would like to invite members to exhibit and showcase their local innovations, If you are interested in exhibiting at any of the events, please contact Lindsey Ashley.
In addition, the draft toolkits for our projects will be available in time for the conferences, we encourage all users to use the toolkits prior to the conference to familiarise yourself with the outputs and provide feedback at the event.
Initially, we are allocating four delegate places per member organisation to attend any of our events, please register your details via the members’ area. Any queries, please contact Emma Pruce, or call 0161 266 1797.
