According to The King’s Fund, there are an estimated 850,000 people with dementia in the United Kingdom – a figure set to double over the next two decades – plus an estimated 500,000 carers for people with dementia.
On 24 February, The King’s Fund and the Alzheimer’s Society are hosting a one-day conference to celebrate recent progress in support for people and families living with dementia.
Taking place in Manchester next week, the Chief Nursing Officer’s Summit, hosted by the Chief Nursing Officer for England, will bring together the most senior leaders in nursing, midwifery and care to provide leadership and guidance, set priorities for the year and celebrate excellence.

‘This government has one overriding goal for the NHS – for it to produce outcomes that are among the best in the world. Simple to say – hard to deliver – impossible without an absolute commitment to patient safety.’
– Rt Hon Simon Burns MP, Minister for Patient Safety, Department of Health
In the 12 months leading up to September 2011, the National Patient Safety Agency recorded over 1.3 million patient safety incidents in England and Wales. It is estimated that the cost of patient safety incidents cost over £2bn a year, with a further £1bn being spent on healthcare associated infections (HCAI). With these figures in mind, we are proud to present the Reducing HCAIs and Improving Patient Safety Conference 2012, a forum for key stakeholders and practitioners to come together to discuss best practice in improving clinical outcomes through better, more through, patient care, stronger regulation in secondary care and improved use of new technologies to manage patient care and flow.
A limited number of free places available on first come first served basis.
A key pathway to ensuring that patient safety incidences are kept to a minimum is through the use of new, cutting edge, technologies. Technology in patient safety has proven to reduce errors in operating theatres, increased reporting of incidences on hospital wards and the key enabler to drive efficiency to reduce the £3bn cost associated with patient safety and healthcare associated infections.

Theatre and preoperative management is constantly in the spotlight and particularly in the prevailing economic climate. Managers and clinicians are under constant pressure to find and devise effective and efficient solutions to ensure safe but cost-effective care.

The Department of Health is working with the NHS to draw up a new strategy for NHS procurement and this will be published by 31st March 2012. A New Strategy for NHS Procurement will help launch this initiative and engage with all parts of the NHS, both to brief delegates and promote discussion about how it can be implemented, the implications and, in particular, how the savings can be achieved.
Delegates will have the chance to challenge, discuss and debate the key issues and gain relevant insight applicable to their professional roles which they can embed within their organisations and improve services.
