NES at the 2015 NHSScotland Event


31-August-2015

The NHSScotland Event took place 23-24 June 2015 at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow. Now in its tenth year, the theme of the event was ‘Leading Integration for Quality’. We contributed to the event via our exhibition (stand number 42), the presence of the Mobile Skills Unit, and the poster display.  

Our stand featured a range of activity related to integrated working across the health and social care workforce. We were also pleased to welcome the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Sport, Shona Robison, who launched a new educational resource to raise awareness of the impact of healthcare associated infections. The Clinical Skills Managed Educational Network (CSMEN) http://www.csmen.scot.nhs.uk/#page=page-1 welcomed delegates to a tour of the Mobile Skills Unit. Having launched it in 2008, Shona Robison, Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Sport also visited the Unit, and discussed progress and equity of access to clinical skills training.
