HSJ’s Patient Safety Congress 2018 will join with the International Society for Rapid Response Systems to deliver a two day event to help dramatically improve patient outcomes and safety in healthcare.

Delegates at the event will be able to network and share ideas, and explore the education and training opportunities in an expanded and more interactive exhibition space.

The congress takes place at the Manchester Central on 9-10 July 2018.

Patient Safety Congress chair Shaun Lintern said: “After last year’s Patient Safety Congress, 84 per cent of delegates said they went away from the event with a specific idea to improve care in their own organisation. Joining with ISRRS and bringing that expertise and knowledge to Manchester means we will have unparalleled education and networking opportunities to help delegates make the difference they want to see for their patients.

“We are busy developing a programme for next year that is better than anything we’ve done before.”

John Welch, President of the ISRRS said: “For the first time in the history of our conference we have decided to co-locate with another event. Former chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson said the most common causes of death in hospital were failures to recognise or act on deterioration. We want to bring the issues of the at risk and deteriorating patient and patient safety generally more closely together.”
