Highlights this year were a panel discussion between DfE and DH on information as well as workshops including a follow up to the Making it Personal seminars earlier in the year. The London region will be presenting its Good Practice Working Group and it is, of course, a chance to network with colleagues from all over the UK. In addition there will be presentations of the Quality Award including Aberdeen, our first Scottish FIS to gain accreditation. Many congratulations to Buckinghamshire, Bristol and Central Bedfordshire who also received the award as well as Cardiff who have recently been re-accredited under the FFQA award scheme.
Main presentation and workshop slides from 2012 are still available to download.
NAFIS members can download additional resources from the event by visiting the NAFIS members' section of our website.
