The NHS paid out £1.1 billion in clinical negligence compensation in 2014/15, money which could have funded over eight million MRI scans. This figure is set to grown year on year. In response to this “compensation inflation” the Royal College of Surgeons issued new guidance to members in October 2016, stating that patients should be more involved in any decision making process. It is hoped this move toward patient-centred care, where individuals are told the benefits and risks of various treatment options, will result in better outcomes and increased safety. At the same time, innovative new health technologies are being used to better monitor patient responses to treatment and reduce human error.

The Innovation in Patient Safety Conference will explore the latest improvements in NHS care and reveal how new methods and technology can be used to safeguard patient safety. Delegates will also learn how legal and insurance groups can contribute to the debate on reducing the NHS compensation bill.
