NHS Scotland Event 2019

Poster Exhibition

The Poster Exhibition forms an integral part of best practice, learning and sharing at the Event. With over 500 individuals and teams submitting their projects in 2019, this is a networking opportunity not to be missed.

The 2019 poster exhibition featured over 200 projects happening across NHS Scotland and partner organisations to support our journey towards 2020 and beyond. These posters represented the shortlisted entries from Poster Abstracts submitted earlier on in the year.  

The winners in each poster category are presented with a trophy during the Poster Awards Ceremony. This includes the winners of the Transformational Change Award and the People’s Choice Award, voted for by the delegates at the Event.


The seven poster categories are based on our priority areas for action stemming from the Quality Ambitions and the ‘triple aim’ as described in the 2020 Vision for Health and Social Care:

  1. Quality of Care: Person-Centred
  2. Quality of Care: Safe
  3. Quality of Care: Effective
  4. Quality of Care: Infrastructure
  5. Health of the Population
  6. Value and Sustainability
  7. Integrated Care
