The day was drawn to a close by Mac McKeever, Non-Executive Chairman of the Insource Strategic Healthcare Advisory Board. Mac gave a really powerful speech commenting on how impressed he was to see so many talented people come together to focus on improving how they work for the benefit of their Patients, their organisation and them as individuals. He was particularly impressed with how positive and engaged people were witnessing everyone in the room contributing and sharing experience, issues and successes.

Some Feedback from the session:

Excellent presentations, very information regarding current spec and the potential developments for the future. RTT training presentation was very good.”

Good range of topics. Interesting to hear about how you are developing the product and what other Trusts have done with the product.

It was very informative and a lot of useful information. It was also very inclusive from a range of positions within the NHS & open discussions re PP+ and going forward. There was also a positive atmosphere where everyone seemed interested and on the same page.”

Very informative, well structured & professional

Interesting engaging agenda.
