A place of safety? Learning from avoidable harm in the NHS


Event details

Launch event for PHSO’s new report, A place of safety? Learning from avoidable harm in the NHS.

Date: Thursday 29 June 2023

Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm

Venue: Westminster Suite, Broadway House, London, SW1H 9NQ

While there have been significant developments in patient safety over the last decade, there is a concerning disconnect between increasing activity and progress made in embedding a just and learning culture across the NHS. Statistics about patient safety remain stark and behind these numbers are the stories of families whose lives have been shattered as a result of avoidable harm. What more must be done to close the gap between ambitious patient safety objectives and the reality of frontline practice?

Join PHSO as they bring together leading policymakers, professionals and those impacted by avoidable harm to discuss their findings and recommendations about improving patient safety. Chief Executive Amanda Amroliwala and the Ombudsman Rob Behrens CBE will give keynote addresses, followed by a panel discussion. Panellists confirmed so far include:

  • Rosie Benneyworth, Chief Investigator, Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch
  • Joanne Hughes, Harmed Patients Alliance
  • Dr Bill Kirkup CBE, led investigations into public service failures including those investigating maternity services at Morecambe Bay and East Kent
