Planning an event?

If you are planning an event within your health board and would like to include any Patient Safety resources, please let us know. We have a range of publications and resources which we can send you - and these can be tailored, depending on those attending the event. We can even provide a stand for certain events - or suggest a speaker, or workshop facilitator.

For more information, please contact Nancy El-Farargy (Research & Information Officer).
