Patient Safety Congress

24 October 2022 - 25 October 2022 Manchester

In light of the sad news of HM Queen Elizabeth II passing, the Congress will now take place on 24 -25 October at Manchester Central.

This year, the HSJ Patient Safety Congress will take place in Manchester on 24 – 25 October. Running across two days, the conference offers attendees the opportunity to step back from the day-to-day, reflect on patient safety and take back actionable insights that will make a difference.

Acting as a platform of discovery, the event’s core purpose is to embolden, enlighten and empower healthcare professionals across the country to improve quality of care and will provide a 360-degree view on the latest safety challenges, developments and innovations.
