IHPN & CQC Patient Safety Conference 2023

On Wednesday 17th May IHPN were delighted to hold our annual patient safety conference alongside the CQC at The Law Society in central London. Now in its fifth year, the conference had a particular focus around the theme of patient involvement in safety and quality and included key regulatory updates and changes.

The event – supported by Bevan Brittan – was attended by over 100 colleagues from IHPN’s membership and the healthcare sector who heard from a fantastic line-up of speakers:

  • Dr Sean O’Kelly, Chief Inspector of Healthcare, CQC
  • Dr Henrietta Hughes OBE, Patient Safety Commissioner for England
  • Ciara Haynes, Senior Equality, Health Inequalities and Human Rights Officer, CQC
  • Helyn Aris, – Equality Health Inequalities and Human Rights Team Manager, CQC

  • Nick Day, Policy and Programme Lead, National Medical Examiner System
  • Dr Rosie Benneyworth, Chief Investigator, HSIB
  • James Titcombe, Harmed Patient Alliance
