  • Share the value of HSCP services to our service users and the healthcare system overall, leading to increased awareness about the work of individual professions, better collaboration and shared understanding.
  •  Recognise and celebrate the enormous impact of HSCP services on our service users, made possible only through our dedicated and inspiring work-force.
  • The theme this year has been chosen from the feedback from the HSCP Strategy Planning Workshops which reflect key messages from HSCP in frontline services , i.e. , HSCP Integrate, Innovate, Deliver.
