The work of staff from across Mid Cheshire Hospitals and Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership (CCICP) was showcased at an annual healthcare exposition last week. 

The event, known as ‘Expo’, represents an opportunity for staff to share and promote some of the hard work they do to improve patient care and develop health services. 

Dennis Dunn, Chairman at Mid Cheshire Hospitals, welcomed those who attended before Laura Smith, MP for Crewe and Nantwich, officially opened the Leighton Hospital event. 

40 project posters ('abstracts') were submitted for the 2018 Expo, which were judged on the day by Ian Benton, Consultant and Director of Medical Education at the Countess of Chester Hospital, Chris Smith, Deputy Chief Operating Officer at Clinical Research Network, and Tracy Bullock, Chief Executive at Mid Cheshire Hospitals. 

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the event, and to offer our congratulations to the day’s winners (listed below).
