About the Patient Safety Congress
One of the strengths of the healthcare community lies in its ability to share work, ideas and experience to continuously improve care and patient outcomes.
Over the last nine years, pressure has only increased on the NHS. With time out of the office increasingly scarce, the Patient Safety Congress remains one of the key events in the diaries of nearly 2000 professionals striving to improve safety and quality in their organisation. Join us to hear the latest policy updates from NHS Improvement, NHS England, the RCN, the RCM and the RCEM; as well as 30+ case studies of the latest and best work shortlisted by the HSJ and Nursing Times awards programmes.
Run by the Health Service Journal and Nursing Times, these publications provide an opportunity to bring together practitioners and policy makers, joining the audiences of the Congress with the Patient Safety Awards. The Patient Safety Congress and Awards, taking place 5th and 6th July, mark the marriage of the leading events that will both celebrate and spread best practice in safety internationally.
The Patient Safety Congress and Awards aims to transform the UK’s approach to delivering high quality care. It champions patient safety as the organising principle of a healthcare ecosystem which is truly efficient, effective and able to offer the best experience to patients and carers. It will be the only event to combine industry-leading examples of patient safety best practice and innovation, with the business case for safety. Attendees will learn from the very best how to save both lives and money.
