As an inventive, creative force within the health service, our raison d’etre is to help the NHS improve.  We do that through open discussion and consideration of new ideas – the only atmosphere in which innovation and improvement can flourish.  Participating in the Battle of Ideas is an exciting opportunity.  Vigorous debates allow participants to learn from others and strengthen their own innovative approaches.
