    An online event
    4,356,277 reports of patient safety incidents were reported between November 2018 and October 2019. These incidents were linked to more than 4,600 deaths. The cost of harm for clinical negligence claims from incidents in 2019/20 expected to cost the NHS £8.3 billion. Improving patient safety could save almost 1,000 extra lives and £100 million in care costs each year from 2023/24.
    There is also potential to reduce claims provision by around £750 million per year by 2025. In July 2019, the NHS published its Patient Safety Strategy which seeks to continuously improve patient safety over the next five to ten years.
    This event draws upon a number of the key themes of the Patient Safety Strategy, reviews its progress one year and reflects on the impact of Covid-19 on patient safety initiatives. It will highlight good practice in developing a proactive approach to identifying risks to safe care while also including systems, risks, human factors and organisational culture.
    Hear the latest policy updates and practical case studies featuring innovative patient safety interventions across primary and secondary care to save lives and protect patients.
