Virtual Conference

Thank you to the 377 people who joined us for our first Virtual Conference.

We bought together our colleagues, patients, carers and community members and explored a variety of themes and ideas relating to Solent care and services. Below you will find the slides, posters and highlights from the day.

Learning from Excellence Awards

As part of our Virtual Conference this year we asked you to nominate a colleague, patient or community member for something they’ve done this year which has helped us learn and improve. This could have been a project, an act of kindness, training support, or something that’s just really struck you as an example of excellence. We then took these nominations and turned them into Star Awards with their very own mug, certificate and other sweet treats for them to enjoy.

Take a look at the nominations and some stars receiving their awards...
