Driving improvements in the delivery and integration of Social Care & Health Services, using best practice in participationPart of the Well Being - it’s in our hands project
The Conference was a great success down to everybody who was involved.
We are very grateful to all of you who were able to attend as delegates, and of course, on behalf of us all, very much appreciated the fantastic input from a wide range of interesting and stimulating speakers and workshop leaders. I know they all enjoyed the engagement and interactions with delegates and any useful themes and issues emerged.
If you didn’t attend – we know that work, budgets, travel, caring issues, and funding, can make conferences difficult to attend – you will see below an easy way in which you can see the slides and handouts and potentially share them with colleagues. We want to work together with all to share best practice throughout the North East.
