This event brings together national policy-makers with frontline innovators for a practical conversation focused on delivering innovation and improvement. Throughout the two days we’ll incorporate the experiences of patients and relatives to help shape system re-design and reduce avoidable harm.

This year the programme places a particular emphasis on the work of frontline clinicians, bringing to the forefront award-winning trusts and pioneering clinician-led projects that have led to significant improvements in safety and quality of care.
