We look forward to welcoming all delegates and speakers to what promises to be an engaging and thought-provoking Event. 

This year’s NHS Scotland Event will focus on Planning for the Future: Delivering Health and Care Services through Innovation and Collaboration and will engage delegates with an extensive programme as well as offering the welcome opportunity to network with colleagues 

Planning for the Future: Delivering Health and Care Services through Innovation and Collaboration

Please make sure to read through the programme below and book onto the sessions you feel are most relevant to your place of work. 

We would encourage those delegates who are attending to take back your learning to the workplace, share insights, tools and techniques with your colleagues and have those important conversations. 

All resources from this year will be available to view and download after the Event.
