Between 10th - 12th September 2019, Gloucestershire Hospitals held their Inaugural Festival of Quality Improvement, Research & Innovation at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and Cheltenham General Hospital.

The event attracted over 80 abstracts, and over 75 posters were displayed during the 3 day festival with daily poster presentations from staff.

The event was a fantastic way to showcase all the incredible work taking place at Gloucestershire Hospitals and received great feedback from staff. There was a huge feeling of pride from staff as they presented their work to others as well as an opportunity to share and learn about what is going on in other areas of the hospital. The posters were all displayed in public areas which allowed patients and members of the public to take part if they wished.

Linking in with our research colleagues has opened up conversations around how we better connect QI and Research with one QI project now being worked up into a research project as a result.

Voting took place during the festival for ‘Best Poster’ and winners will be announced shortly.
