Thursday 14 February

Day 1: Cardiac Safety Workshop

Following the success of the Sharing and Learning from Cardiac Incidents Workshop last year, the first afternoon will further explore how the collaborative can share and learn from each other’s safety incidents. There will be more presentations and discussion of selected safety incidents from NCBC centres, and we will discuss what actions NCBC centres can take forward in order to help prevent similar incidents and harms occurring in the future.

Places are limited for this workshop. Please liaise with your Lead Contact if you would like to attend.

Friday 15 February

Day 2: NCBC ‘Meet, Share, Learn and Do…’

The second full day of the Annual Conference will feature the usual combination of plenary talks from national experts and leaders in cardiac care, featuring presentations and panel discussion on Informed Consent, as well as updates on the new CVD Plan for England and the Cardiology GIRFT programme.

There will also be 10 highly topical parallel breakout group sessions, enabling delegates to discuss common problems and solutions.

This year, we are also launching the NCBC Cardiac Services Improvement and Innovation Award - with presentations from the four shortlisted finalists and the chance to vote for the winner!
