CHILL Annual Event
Registration now open
Improvement in a Changing Health Landscape.
CHILL’s Annual Event will this year focus on Improvement.
CHILL (and other) researchers will be reporting on a variety of improvement projects in healthcare, drawn from across all parts of health services. We believe that the real-world lessons to be drawn from these projects will be of interest to a wide range of NHS professionals and managers.
Our 2017 CHILL Showcase Event will take place during the afternoon of Wednesday 18 October, 2017 and will be held at the Institute of Mental Health Building, Triumph Road, Nottingham.
CHILL's Annual Event is free to attend, however, places are limited.

Participants gain the benefits of studying for an internationally recognised MBA alongside peers from many different industries, while gaining up to date knowledge and skills relevant for the challenges of contemporary healthcare.
“Specialist healthcare modules are led by both academic and industry specialists, allowing individuals to develop within a friendly and supportive learning environment.”
