The ECIP website is now closed, but don't worry, you can find us on NHS Improvement's improvement hub.


The improvement hub lets you search hundreds of improvement resources - you can even share your own. You can also collaborate and explore your ideas with colleagues on the discussion board.


The final day to access is Friday 24th March 2017, after this date the site will be available through the national archive.


Presentations from the latest ECIP event can be found on this page. Information and presentations from previous events can be found in the sub-menus to Event Resources
