  • Taking place at London’s ExCeL on Tuesday 21st & Wednesday 22nd November, Patient First welcomes an attendance of over 3,700 healthcare professionals over two days for the latest insight, education, sourcing and networking in and around patient safety and is delighted to be working with NHS Improvement and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority in running a dedicated conference programme to support Medicines Safety Officers, Medical Device Safety Officers and Patient Safety teams.

    The following speakers and topics will be represented over the two days:

  • Addenbrookes GS1 Passive RFID Case Study

    By pioneering the use of active and passive RFID technology, and implementing GS1 standards to manage mobile medical equipment, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (CUH) has improved efficiency, increased patient safety and reduced capital expenditure.

  • East Kent Hospital Case Study

    Managing and keeping track of a large fleet of mobile medical devices across three major acute hospital sites can be a serious challenge. That’s why East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) has implemented Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tracking of medical assets to support their three medical equipment libraries. The use of RFID has considerably reduced the time spent by clinical and engineering staff looking for devices, improved utilisation levels of equipment, increased patient safety and helped drive down the need for ad-hoc device hires.

  • NHS Improvment
    Taking place at London’s ExCeL on Tuesday 21st & Wednesday 22nd November, the Patient First and Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) event welcomes an attendance of more than 3,700 healthcare professionals over two days for the latest insight, education, sourcing and networking in and around patient safety and IPC and is delighted to be working in association with NHS Improvement to host the infection prevention education programme.

    “There is a clear ambition to reduce healthcare associated Gram-negative blood stream infections (BSI) across the health and social care sector – in the first instance the focus will be reducing E.coli by 10% in 2017-18. We can achieve this by working together to improve the continuity of care, and by
    sharing best practice. says NHS Improvement’s Dr. Ruth May, Executive Nursing Director, responsible for Infection Prevention & Control, “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Patient First to host this year’s Infection Prevention & Control conference and look forward to supporting staff from secondary, primary and community care settings”.

    NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts and NHS trusts, as well as independent providers that provide NHS-funded care. Offering support providers need to give patients consistently safe, high quality, and compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable.

    NHS Improvement’s Infection Prevention and Control Conference takes place over two dedicated theatres on Tuesday 21st & Wednesday 22nd November and all those working in, as well as those with an interest in, infection prevention are recommended to join this major networking and learning opportunity and register for an education grant to cover attendance.

    “Infection prevention remains a hugely important part of Patient First, which serves to support and address the key issues surrounding patient safety”, says Event Director Lucy Pitt. “Working with NHS Improvement’s national IPC team together with an expert advisory panel from Public Health England and the Infection Prevention Society [to be announced shortly] will help direct the content and learning necessary to support many hundreds of IPC leads and professionals with fully subsidised passes”.

    Alongside NHS Improvement’s IPC conference, delegates can access keynote patient safety sessions in the Plenary Theatre, learn about technological developments to support the delivery of healthcare in the Safety through Technology theatre, listen to a range of case studies from the AHSN Network’s Patient Safety Collaboratives in the Best Practice Theatre and the Healthcare Quality Improvement Network (HQIPs) Quality Improvement Theatre as well as access over 100 product and service providers on the busy integrated exhibition floor.
