Conference Overview

In December 2018 NHSI announced a consultation on Patient Safety as part of the 10-year plan. In the Spring of 2019, NHSI will publish the consultations taken for a new national Patient Safety Strategy that will be part of the NHS Long Term Plan. In June in Birmingham, we will announce the plans for local delivery and steps for implementation.

 

In healthcare systems all over the world there are times when things go tragically wrong. We all understand that healthcare is a people business, and that with the very best intentions anything involving people is liable to human error.

 

Improving safety is about reducing risk, minimising mistakes and establishing the necessary checks and balances. It is also the evolution of a 70year old free of charge at the point of access national service to a 24/7 seamless provision.

The NHS has embarked on a journey to become one of the safest healthcare systems in the world. In England over the last 4 years improvements have been achieved. We have had a complete overhaul of CQC standards, and comprehensive inspections of all trusts, as well as primary care providers.

 

Patient safety is also a main driver in achieving cost savings and efficiencies across the whole health economy.

 

We have seen the introduction of the new protections for those who raise concern and whistleblow, which means that the NHS is now more transparent. There are now Patient Safety Collaboratives, each established and led locally delivering stakeholder owned improvement programmes.

 

The NHS approach to patient safety is widely recognised as world-leading and their continuous work with national and international partners ensures continued improvement which will benefit patients.

 

The “Patient Safety 2019” conference with the input of leading quality and safety experts will look at what needs to be done over the coming years to improve even further.

 

Topics covered on the day will include, Leadership, Change Management, Preventing HAI’s, Never Events and Reducing Medication Error. There will also be a progress report on the Patient Safety Incident Management system (PSIMS) which in April 2018 completed the Alpha phase and is about to move into the Beta stage of development.

 

Join over 400 healthcare professionals to drive this agenda forward through innovation and sharing best practice.

Safety Petition
Safety Petition

"Mandatory for all hospital theatres to evacuate diathermy tissue smoke plume"

In 2007, smoking was banned in the UK. In operating theatres, we are still '"smoking" because some consultants are reluctant to use this technology.This continues to put perioperative staff and patients at risk of breathing in smoke which contains many harmful compounds including hydrogen cyanide.
