Introducing Peer and Expert Inspections

Spotlight on Quality

We are excited to host another Spotlight on Quality webinar, during this session we have the spotlight shining on Governance

Within this spotlight, we’ll be sharing best practices and insights from subject matter experts including Jane Cummings, former Chief Nursing Officer for England, and Carrie Marr, former Chief Executive of the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC), as well as Sarah Carr-Cave, Deputy Chief Nurse, Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust.

During the event you’ll hear from Tendable customers at different stages of their governance journey, sharing their stories with you. We’ll be focusing on building strong governance practices across all levels of healthcare organisations, building a culture of quality from front-line to management, and sharing a current example of good governance across an NHS organisation.

If you can’t make this session, continue to register as we will be sending a recording of the session to all registrants.
