The importance of overarching leadership for patient safety in health and social care is a key concept. Ensuring that leaders embed staff safety into safety programmes is essential.


Some of the core issues that our exceptional panel will be exploring:

  • How are leaders ensuring patient and staff safety during the pandemic? Are we doing enough?

  • How are we prioritising patient access to non Covid care and treatment?

  • Are we doing enough to encourage just and learning cultures and staff speaking up for safety?

  • How are we sharing learning and knowledge on safe treatment and care?

  • How are system and professional regulators ensuring that patient safety is a priority?
