In 2023, NHS Resolution will attend a number of external events and conferences. In addition to our various service areas attending a range of these, we will have a corporate presence at five key external events and conferences:
- Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Congress: The Brighton Centre, 15-17 May
- Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG) World Congress: RCOG Head Quarters London, 12-14 June
- Health Service Journal (HSJ) Patient Safety Congress: Manchester Central Convention Complex, 18-19 September
- Baby Lifeline’s National Maternity Safety Conference: Hilton Metropole Hotel Birmingham, 21 September
- NHS Providers Annual Conference: ACC Liverpool, 14-15 November
Our attendance at these events is underpinned by our strategy. Our focus to 2025 is centred on four strategic priorities:
- Deliver fair resolution
- Share data and insights as a catalyst for improvement
- Collaborate to improve maternity outcomes
- Invest in our people and systems to transform our business
At all of the above five events, we look forward to sharing data and insights, in the form of recent publications and resources, as a catalyst for improvement in the healthcare system, including improvement in patient safety.
In line with our first strategic priority, deliver fair resolution, some of our colleagues recently travelled to Brighton where we exhibited at the RCN Congress in May. Dr Denise Chaffer, Director of Safety and Learning, spoke on ‘promoting a just and learning culture’ following the recent publication of the Being Fair 2 report. This report and the subsequent Just and learning culture charter aim to support organisations in the creation of a person-centred workplace that is compassionate, safe and fair when care in the NHS goes wrong.
We also exhibited at the RCOG World Congress in London in mid-June, where we outlined the work we’re undertaking linked to our third strategic priority, collaborate to improve maternity outcomes, including our Maternity Incentive Scheme, Early Notification Scheme, maternity team reviews, eLearning maternity module, early notification case stories.
We are now turning our attention to the remaining three events in our schedule. Baby Lifeline’s National Maternity Safety Conference in September, also aligns with our third strategic priority, collaborate to improve maternity outcomes and we will be focusing on the ways in which NHS Resolution can support the government’s maternity safety ambition.
Lastly, in line with strategic priority four, invest in our people and systems to transform our business, we recognise that the NHS’s most valuable resource is its people. This year’s theme for the HSJ Patient Safety Congress is ‘facing reality: honest conversations about safety’, whilst NHS
Providers Annual Conference 2023 centres on the longstanding commitment of staff and ensuring a sustainable health service.
Our attendance at these events is a great opportunity to meet our stakeholders and direct delegates toward key resources and publications that may be of use to them or their organisation. If you are attending any of the events outlined above, please do come and visit our stand, we would be happy to answer any questions.
