SPRING LECTURE 2017: Dr Margaret Hannah

Sutherland Trust Spring Lecture
Humanising Healthcare: Patterns of Hope for a System under Strain
Presented by Dr Margaret Hannah

Wednesday 10 May, Lauriston Hall, 28 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh EH3 9DJ
Doors 6.30pm (refreshments) Lecture 7pm.

Current pressures on the NHS have built up as the result of underlying beliefs which underpin structures and behaviours.  Radical renewal of the NHS will come from questioning these assumptions and growing a new culture of health and social care based on a different set of premises.  Offering hope to both NHS and wider public sector colleagues, Margaret Hannah will share her first-hand knowledge of pioneering approaches to service renewal which focus on enhancing human experience and human relations, with a particular focus on her experiences of successful innovation in the culture of care in Fife. MargaretHannah
