December 2020

The Virtual NOC 2020 ran from Wednesday 25 November to Thursday 3 December and welcomed over 350 participants, an increase of over 100 compared with the 2019 event.

The eight sessions covered a wide range of topics, including updates from the National Outpatient Transformation Programme and NHSEI Commissioning Transformation Teams, and delegates were able to engage via live Q&A.

LOCSU would like to thank all presenters and everyone who watched and participated in the Virtual NOC 2020. Thanks also go to the AOP for their help in organising the event.

Online surveys are being sent to all participants via email and we would appreciate your help in completing these by Thursday 17 December as your input will be invaluable.
