Robert Francis QC
Report of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry

Culture featured very heavily in Robert Francis QC’s report earlier this year into the failures at Mid Staffordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It was identified by him that the NHS needs to develop a common culture of caring that was made real throughout the system. It is clear that NHS organisations need to be striving to better understand their cultures of care and learning how to change them. This important conference has been created to help the NHS learn the skills and understand the mechanisms required to deliver cultural transformation.

One of the key challenges in implementing both the Francis Review and in delivering the ambitions laid out recently in the subsequent Keogh Review is around how to deliver changes on the scale required, particularly in relation to changing the culture of health. Culture is notoriously difficult, but not impossible to change.

This conference has been designed to support health and care organisations in delivery of transformation. It does this by providing an introduction to how culture operates in healthcare, an analysis of safer healthcare systems and cultures and in-depth practical exploration of what actually works when delivering transformation. This will be evidenced by the experience of Trusts that are delivering culture change on the ground.
