Our healthcare system faces an unprecedented challenge due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. As a result, HSJ have had to cancel this year’s Congress, scheduled to take place on 13-14 July 2020. 

HSJ are privileged to work so closely with incredibly dedicated people from across the healthcare system. We will continue to provide our valued readers with relevant and useful content. Hopefully, you will have seen that HSJ coverage on coronavirus is free to access to ensure you stay up to date as events unfold.  

The focus of the Patient Safety Congress has always been to drive quality improvement on the frontline, share best practice and push the boundaries of patient safety in the UK and we look forward to welcoming you back next year on 12-13 July 2021

In the meantime, we will be looking at producing virtual content on patient safety topics and will review the programme for 2021. Further information is to follow, but for now please be advised that the HSJ Patient Safety Congress will not go ahead on 13-14 July 2020.

As we build the #HSJpatientsafety community, please make sure you follow @HSJptsafety on Twitter. Whilst it is a platform for us to send updates about the event, it is first and foremost a place for everyone to share knowledge about patient safety.
