Patient safety touches all corners of the NHS: From board-level to frontline clinicians, service managers to governance leads, mental health to maternity, directors of nursing to infection control specialists and GPs to Anaesthetists.

This event is designed to provide learning for all members of the multi-disciplinary team, catering to both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds – all with one thing in common: the safety of patients.

The Congress is open to NHS organisations right across the care pathway, as well as independent healthcare providers, voluntary sector organisations, primary care, ICSs, patient representatives, academia and students.

Whilst the event focuses predominantly on NHS England policy and best practice – there are transferable learnings for colleagues working across other areas of the UK as well as international healthcare providers.

Each year the event attracts a wide range of professionals from the following areas (NB. this is not an exclusive list).
