National online training provider and specialist in Lean Healthcare, Virtual College, is to hold its 5th Lean Healthcare Academy Annual Conference and Awards event at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds on Thursday 7th February 2013. The event, which grows in size and attendance each year, has been designed for attendees to share best practice and to celebrate with those who have adopted and sustained lean working principles within their organisation.
The event starts with an exhibition where finalists display their working projects and then delegates are encouraged to visit a selection of workshops covering many different lean achievements. The evening sees the presentation of the official awards, where a winner will be selected from nine different categories including: Best Patient Experience, Pioneers in Telecare, Embracing Technology, Sharing Best Practice and Sustained Improvement.
Full details can be found at www.leanhealthcareacademy.co.uk or contact Virtual College for an awards brochure outlining the event on 01943 885086. Nominations must be received by 11pm on Monday 8th October 2012 to be considered for an award. Or simply book your attendance before the 9th November and qualify for the early bird price of £49 for both the day and evening event (all finalists get two free places).
Judith Clarkson, Director of the Virtual College and Head of the Healthcare Division, said of the event "There has never been a more poignant time to get involved with this conference and awards event, either by entering a successful lean project or by attending the event to pick up some great best practice ideas."
