Find out how we support health and social care organisations redesign and continuously improve services during this two-day conference and exhibition in Glasgow (30-31 May).
The NHSScotland Event is an opportunity for anyone working in and with the NHS in Scotland to come together to consider the challenges faced, to share best practice and the most innovative approaches to delivering the highest quality of care. It’s also a chance to learn about tools and techniques that can support you in your role.
This year's theme is "Working Together, Improving Outcomes" and Healthcare Improvement Scotland is in attendance to showcase how we support you in this endeavour.
