NHS medical director Professor Sir Bruce Keogh will be among the speakers at next year's inaugural Patient Safety Congress, which is being organised by HSJ and its sister title Nursing Times.

Patient Safety Congress 2008 is being delivered in partnership with the National Patient Safety Agency, Health Foundation and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. It will mix policy debate with practical sessions on subjects such as changing clinical practice, information and measurement and infection control

The event at London's ExCel centre on 22-23 May is sponsored by Microsoft and supported by a website with updates on patient safety from HSJ and NT, best practice information and expert opinions.
