"This is a very well organised event. Locating the talks in and around the exhibition works well. There’s a wide variety of delegates here who are looking for ways to improve patient safety, so it’s been a good opportunity to raise awareness of our brand and get some good leads."

Ryan Franklin, Country Manager, Sage Products

"We came here to talk about our new products, find new products and speak to senior people in infection prevention and control. We’ve ticked every one of those boxes. We’ve met key decision makers and introduced them to our products. This show has opened doors for us."

Alan Wright, Managing director, Bio-Rite

"We’ve had six members of staff on the stand and they’ve been busy all day. We’ve been able to engage with some senior people and get some good quality leads. This is a new technology and the industry wants us to be here."

Angela Vessey, Director, Antimicrobial Copper

"There’s a real buzz at this show this year. The Best Practice theatre has worked really well. The sessions have been full and have attracted people to our stand. Being here has been great for our profile and for networking both in and beyond our partner organisations."

Caroline Kenyon, Director of Communications, The AHSN Network

"Networking, raising awareness and meeting new and existing clients is why we attend this show. We also get valuable ideas and suggestions from delegates that we can implement."

David Proctor, Implementation Consultant, Patientrack

"This show has been fantastic. The level of engagement and enthusiasm with delegates is like nothing we’ve ever seen. The delegates are really keen to learn.  They want to engage with us to explore solutions and want us to visit them afterwards - you don’t get that at other shows.  It’s been phenomenal."

Chris Cousins, Associate Product Manager, B Braun

"We’ve had an excellent show. We’re officially launching in January, so we came here to help raise awareness of the new company. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response from A&E, infection control, theatre staff and even from other companies. We’ve got lots of quality leads to follow up with. It’s been great."

John Catton, Company Director, Eco International 

"This has been a really good show for us. It’s our first time here and we’ve met the right people and got lots of leads. It’s been great to showcase our products and to see people we would never have met otherwise."

Alison Weller, Area Sales Manager, Frontier Medical (Parafricta)

"We get lots of value from this show. It attracts the right delegate profile and we get good engagement from the people we see here. The exhibition is a great environment to show off our systems - we demo all day long and get loads of great leads. A very well run and well managed show." 

Cyrus Hodivala, Head of Sales, Avantec (Omnicell)

"We took a bit of a punt coming to this show, but we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality of visitors. The fact that NHS England is associated with the event is a huge plus. We’ve had some good conversations and taken great leads. We’re very pleased."

Paul Brady, Area Sales Manager, Morse Watchmans

"It’s been a good show for us. We’ve had a good footfall to the stand and have signed people up to our newsletter. A lot of people here know us already, but we’ve made some new contacts too, which is great."

Catherine Riedle, Marketing and Communications Officer, The Health Foundations

"Historically, the Care Show was the show for us, but we were disappointed by the football there this year. This show has become far more relevant for us because of its integrated approach and because it delivers such a wide mix of delegates. It’s been really good for us this year."

Mark Dodd, National Business Development Manager, Biodose UK

"This is our first time at this event and it’s been great for creating awareness and generating leads. We had people on the stand before we’d finished putting it together! It’s been very interesting to talk to people and to get their feedback."

Kenton Madge, VP Europe & MEA, Stanley Healthcare

"Our second year at the show and our most successful so far. This show is the fit for us – we have good conversations and meet people we haven’t spoken to before. We get good quality leads from people who want to follow up with a meeting after the show."

Shaun Powell, General Sales Manager, Abloy UK

"We had a good year last year and this year has been even better. We’ve got a lot of new leads and have caught up with people we already know. This is the right show for us and delivers the right mix of people."

David Watts, Director, Who Are You

"We’ve had a really good show. We met a lot of people we don’t know and it’s given us the opportunity to explain what we do and engage with patient safety leads, doctors etc, which will help us with our solutions."

Simon Bailey, Development Director, Serco

"We’re a solution, so we need to get buy-in from hospital staff. This show delivers the right audience for us. It’s a great opportunity for delegates to experience our units, which transforms them from concept to reality. You can’t beat that."

Ian Gillespie, Chief Executive, Vanguard Healthcare

"We’ve showcased our new product here and it’s been very well received. The breadth of the audience has been great for us. We’ve had conversations with nurses, doctors and paramedics to matrons and hospital trusts and have lots of leads. We were so busy that we completely ran out of samples on day one."

Russell Maudsley, Director, SAFE-T

"This show has allowed us to engage with a vast range of people via workshops, questionnaires, Q&A sessions as well as one to one conversations on the stand. It’s a one-stop shop for engagement. We have been able to gather a huge amount of information here which will inform our work going forwards. Very useful."

Matt Fogarty, Head of Patient Safety, Policy & Strategy, NHS England

"A great show. Our stand was in a good location so we had lots of passing traffic on both days of the show. Our session also drew people to the stand. We’ve had some great conversations and have got lots of follow-ups to make."

Helen Bond, Campaigns Manager, Royal Voluntary Service

"Being new to the UK, we thought how best to raise awareness of our solutions in an effective way. Patient First offered this opportunity and it “exceeded all our expectations”. A very busy 2 days, with both quality and quantity of connections made. A great source of leads from a very engaged audience. We’ll be back next year!"

Peter Askew, VP UK and EMEA, RL Solutions

"Patient First has once again provided us with a unique opportunity to meet with our customers, patient safety experts and thought leaders from all across the NHS and other healthcare landscapes. As we strive towards safer care for patients and staff, this event has become invaluable in connecting with those who are making a real difference in patient safety."

Matthew Brew, Marketing Manager, DATIX

“We have been very busy on the Microsoft stand. Nonstop since it opened. We have spoken to a large amount of people. Numerous doctors and nurses, managers of NHS Trusts. It has been fantastic for us”

Michael Brooks, Patient Source / Microsoft
