Increasing efficiency and productivity is one of the key goals for the NHS this year. And both the Productive Time Programme and Lean Thinking are mechanisms that the health service can use to help achieve this. However, this conference is not about making cuts. It’s about focusing on the needs of patients and delivering real quality and value to them, as well as taxpayers.

This is your opportunity to hear from leading clinicians who have succeeded in delivering both value and quality in their services. Come and share their experiences and learn how you can achieve this too. You’ll also have the chance to hear from the organisations tasked with driving this agenda forward. And review the range of tools and initiatives available to help improve performance.

*Quick wins*
The NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement has identified the characteristics of high performing systems for a number of HRGs. These are the areas where quick wins can be made. Attend this conference to hear direct from the Institute how you can achieve this. And use the benchmark of the successful Trusts, who will be providing case studies, to improve your own services.

*Thinking Lean*
Lean Thinking is one of a number of service improvement methodologies to migrate from industry, which appear to have great potential. NHS organisations are now applying these in the health service. As well as hearing the theory from the experts, this conference will provide you with the opportunity to hear from pioneers about the practical benefits they have gained from applying Lean principles. As well as exploring Lean, Six Sigma, The Theory of Constraints, Clinical Microsytems and others, you will also examine a synergy of Lean and Six Sigma that has been developed specifically for the NHS.

*Working smarter*
Efficiency is a wave sweeping across the public sector, which is now breaking with vigour on the shores of the NHS. By working smarter, eliminating waste and driving efficiency through the three main channels of people, processes and technology, the NHS can truly deliver quality in services for patients and value to the public. Attend this important event to learn the skills to help your organisation achieve this challenging goal.
