All resources from the NHS Scotland Event 2019 are now available on the Event website.

The NHS Scotland Event is the leading health event in Scotland. In its 14th year, the Event continues to be the ‘premier meeting place’ for those committed to providing sustainable high quality health and social care services for the people of Scotland.

Every year, the Event provides the opportunity for those working in and with the NHS in Scotland to come together to consider the challenges, to share best practice and the most innovative approaches to delivering the highest quality of care, and to take away tools and techniques that will support them in their various roles.

Over 2,000 delegates from NHS Scotland and its partner organisations came together for this year’s Event at the SEC in Glasgow, to share learning and showcase good practice.

The extensive programme featured four Plenary, four Mini Plenary, 12 Parallel, four Spotlight Sessions and a number of Facilitated Poster Presentations across both days of the Event. Delegates heard from numerous inspiring speakers who helped to showcase examples from the NHS and other public services.

The Plenary and Mini Plenary Sessions featured a range of speakers who reflected on the overall theme of the Event – Working Together, Improved Outcomes.

Delegates heard from Jeane Freeman, MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport through an in conversation interview facilitated by Professor Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director for Healthcare Quality. Delegates learned about the Cabinet Secretary on a more personal level and heard about her priorities moving forward within health and social care.

We also heard from Malcolm Wright, Director-General Health and Social Care and Chief Executive NHS Scotland on the importance of integration and took to the stage with Sally Loudon, Chief Executive, COSLA, as they reflected on the work that’s happened so far, and their ambitions for the future.

Alongside the main programme, delegates also had the opportunity to visit over 70 exhibitors who were there to showcase their products and services to help support and inform the work taking place across the service. The main exhibition hall was also home to over 200 posters displaying some of the best examples of quality improvement in each of the poster categories.

The resources available on the website include filmed footage of all the Plenary and Mini Plenary Sessions, presentations from all the Sessions, Speaker Interviews, ‘What You Said’, as well as all the winning posters

Please take time to look through all the resources and share the learning with colleagues.
