We were delighted to welcome so many delegates to the CHKS Portugal Conference 2017 on Tuesday 6 June 2017 at the Holiday Inn, Lisbon.

This year’s conference had a theme of quality improvement and joined together a variety of international speakers.

José Luis Carvalho of Hospital de Braga, Portugal, highly commended in our 2017 Top Hospitals Programme, talked about how they are driving quality.

Jessica Mallach at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, this year’s winner of the Patient Experience Top Hospital Award, discussed improving patient experience – and how they continue to be ‘best in class’.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Charles Young covered the topic of quality improvement in health systems and for individual patients through effective triage, and what the future of triage might look like.

CHKS client manager Carlos Goes de Souza, CHKS Client Manager, presented a session on creating relational touch points for patient satisfaction – ensuring a remarkable experience for both patients and staff within a care environment, with Roy Lilley, health commentator and broadcaster, finishing the day off.
