NHS 70 MK small

The Event in the Tent proves hugely popular!

In May 2017, we launched our biggest ever internal engagement event for staff and volunteers of the hospital, providing them with a platform for sharing ideas and building up relationships from across the Trust. In our outside marquee, we hosted sessions that were aiming to inspire, support and improve learning in our aim of becoming an outstanding organisation.

Across the three days of the event, over 1,000 staff came through the doors to our marquee to get involved in workshops, presentations and even fitness classes!
