Patient Safety Congress

20 September 2021 - 21 September 2021 Manchester

This year, the HSJ Patient Safety Congress returns to Manchester on 20 – 21 September. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of prioritising patient safety as a core responsibility across the entire system.

The conference programme has been developed around the key principles of real solutions and challenging content – enabling delegates to take back ideas to achieve outstanding patient care and implement the core initiatives of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy.

NHS Supply Chain session – 21 September

Jo Gander, Director of Clinical and Product Assurance, NHS Supply Chain will join Chris Stirling, Interim Director of Medical Technologies, Department of Health and Social Care, Janine Jolly, Group Manager – Devices Safety and Surveillance, Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency and Zoe Packman, Head of Nursing at NHS England and Improvement on the panel discussion on day 2, 21 September 2021 at 11.15am.

The session will focus on “Developing a system response to the Cumberlege Review – one year on”, looking at how partners in the healthcare system are breaking down siloes to develop cross functional ways of working. Key discussion points will be:

  • The impact of patient contribution on the safety of medical devices
  • Find out how the system will function differently to ensure safety on a number of levels
  • Learn about how future plans for safety will continue to evolve

We are proud to sponsor the “Patient Safety Innovation of the Year” award where the winner will be announced on 20 September 2021 at the awards dinner.

NHS Supply Chain will also be exhibiting at the conference, with colleagues on hand to answer your questions.
