Health and Care Innovation Expo 2017

We ran workshops, theatre sessions and demonstrations at the NHS Expo in Manchester.

We've got a number of workshops, pop up university sessions, and main stage speakers at this year's Expo. 

Visit us on Stand 83 to see demonstrations of new ways to measure improvement in patient flow, and the model hospital.

Developing people - improving care
