Please note that this event is only open to NELFT staff.


Invite to present your quality improvement and clinical audit work:

As part of this we are hoping to share clinical audits and quality improvement projects have been taking place within NELFT over the last year or so, both to celebrate success and share learnings. 

There will be two opportunities for these to be shared within the conference: 

  1. The first being as part of a story board round.  

  2. The second: from these we will be nominating three clinical audits and three quality improvement projects for an award. These six projects will be presented as short five-minute presentations in the first session of the day in front of our exec team, key speakers and the wider NELFT workforce. 

All audits/projects from both the story board rounds and the awards will be shared across various platforms within NELFT so that the wider NELFT workforce can benefit from them, rather than limiting access to those attending the event. 


Why take part? 

  • We believe that this event will not only benefit the wider NELFT staff through being able to learn from your successes, but it will also give your team(s) the recognition and celebration you much deserve for your hard work. 

  • We will also be nominating all successful submissions to the conference for a Make a Difference Award to further recognise and celebrate the hard work. 


Next steps: 


Looking forward to having you join a fantastic day of learning from, sharing, and celebrating success within NELFT.
