All resources from the NHSScotland Event 2016 are now available to view.

Now in its eleventh year, the annual NHSScotland Event continues to be a highlight in the NHSScotland calendar. The theme of this year’s Event was Leading Transformational Change for Health and Social Care, reflecting where we are on our journey towards the 2020 Vision for Health and Social Care.

Around 1,600 delegates from NHSScotland and its partners, came together with the wider public sector, the third sector and commercial organisations at the SECC in Glasgow, to share learning and showcase good practice.

The extensive programme featured four Plenaries, 14 Parallel Sessions, and for the first time, Spotlight Sessions and Facilitated Poster Viewings, which provided a wide range of topical areas of learning and discussion. Delegates heard from a number of inspiring speakers who helped to showcase powerful examples of quality using real stories and personal experiences of those who are involved or affected at all levels.

This year, delegates heard from Shona Robison MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, Dr Catherine Calderwood, Chief Medical Officer as well as Professor Fiona McQueen, Chief Nursing Officer. The Event was also delighted to welcome Dr Venkatesh, Chief Medical Officer for the Aravind Eye Hospital, South India and Professor Chris Ham, Chief Executive, The King’s Fund, to their first NHSScotland Event.

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 230 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 Sessions, presentations from the Parallel and Spotlight Sessions, Roving Reporter Interviews, Vox Pops, as well as all the winning posters. Please take time to check out the resources and share them with colleagues.
