Lean Healthcare practitioners celebrate with Virtual College

Last week the 2012 Lean Healthcare e-Academy Awards were held at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds, celebrating the best examples of Lean techniques being implemented across the healthcare sector. As well as being an opportunity to acknowledge some outstanding achievements, our Lean Healthcare e-Academy hosts the annual event to bring together professionals from across the UK to network and discuss how changing and updating techniques and practices help their
organisations to reduce costs and improve service.

The day started in our exhibition hall where guests could see the latest from carefully selected sponsors, before being invited into break out rooms where key speakers and award nominees led seminars and discussions.

The winners of each category are listed below, but for full details of the conference, case studies and video from the event you can visit and bookmark http://www.leanhealthcareacademy.co.uk/lhaawards2012
