The 2015 NSW Health Innovation Symposium “Create Tomorrow” and the annual NSW Health Awards were held at Waterview, Bicentennial Park on 2 and 3 November, 2015.

It also offered the opportunity for individuals to discuss the progress of health reform in driving improvements in outcomes and performance across the NSW Health system.
