    The event will delve into the issues surrounding waste identification, removal, and value addition within each clinical service unit (CSU). Together, we'll explore innovative strategies to spotlight waste removal as a top priority, educate teams in waste management activities, and empower teams to eliminate root causes of waste rather than resorting to temporary solutions.

    Below you will see some of the highlights of this initiative and through this showcase you will understand how they implemented this and the benefits the organisation has seen.
