Seminar objectives

This working seminar is an essential part of the performance networks timetable and is an excellent shared learning opportunity. The seminar will include the year 16 (2013/14) data collection results as well as issues affecting service performance. The workshop sessions will feature a range of topics including what the data is telling us about managing reduced budgets, how to use performance data effectively, best practice case studies and problem solving surgeries. There will be an opportunity in each workshop to discuss issues of local concern and develop solutions with colleagues through problem solving surgeries.
