This webinar is open to DoF's/CFOs and deputies only.
On average 11,000 deaths a year are classed as avoidable with that number probably tripling in the years following the pandemic.
Patient Safety Learning is a charity and independent voice for improving patient safety. They harness the knowledge, enthusiasm and commitment of healthcare organisations, professionals and patients for system-wide change and the reduction of preventable harm.
They provide a wealth of free resources on the hub and they are on a mission to align leadership and frontline delivery of care; ensuring that patient safety is a core purpose in the development of integrated care. ICSs present a significant opportunity to drive improvements in patient safety in local health systems across the NHS. However, patient safety remains the ‘elephant in the room’ in the development of ICS roles and responsibilities.
Helen will bring a unique perspective to this session as an ex-NHS finance director, she understands the pressure and conflicting priorities faced by NHS leaders. But with between 13 – 15% of yearly spending being attributed to patient safety issues. Not only morally is this an issue that needs to be addressed but getting it right can also have a big impact on the bottom line.
