NHS Quality: Improving Patient Care

  • Wednesday, 26 November 2014
  • Manchester Conference Centre
  • 08:30 - 16:30
  • Overview

NHS Quality: Improving Patient Care will support the NHS to drive higher standards of care and patient safety in an ever challenging environment.

The NHS is facing the biggest financial challenge since its inception and, at the same time, is tasked with continually raising the standards of care. Following the Mid Staffordshire scandal and the damning reviews of Berwick and Francis the quality of care is under heightened scrutiny. Increased transparency, regulation and performance measurement initiatives are aiming to drive improvements in care – but what does the best in quality care look like and how can it be practically achieved?

Through practical case studies, insightful presentations and interactive seminars, delegates will learn how a culture of care can be fostered and services can be coordinated around the needs of the patient.
