HSJ Patient Safety Awards 2019

Twelve Patient Safety projects from across Kent, Surrey and Sussex have been shortlisted in this year's HSJ Patient Safety Awards. 

The prestigious awards are independently judged by experts from across the healthcare sector and demonstrate extraordinary progress being made by teams to deliver and improve safe care.

We wish all involved the best of luck for the final round of judging, which will see the shortlisted organisations presenting their projects to a panel of experts and NHS leaders. Winners will be announced on 2 July at a ceremony in Manchester.
