Free talk examines the signs of the deteriorating patient

Posted: April 10, 2018

Public invited to session on Thursday 12 April

A free health talk on how staff at the Great Western Hospital recognise the signs of a patient whose health is deteriorating is being held on Thursday 12 April.

Matron Sarah Canfield will be leading the interactive talk on how improvements have been made in NHS practice and how healthcare staff identify and manage patients whose condition is worsening.
Sarah said: "My talk will be about saving lives and improving safety and communication at the Trust.
"It is also a chance for the public to find out about the improvements in safety at the hospital."

The free talk is from 6pm-7pm in the Academy at GWH.
Sarah's talk comes as part of the national campaign Sign Up To Safety, which aims to make the NHS the safest healthcare system in the world.
Sign up to Safety forms part of the Trust's 500 Lives campaign, which sets out its overarching vision of saving an extra 500 lives by the year 2020.
Launched in September 2015, 500 Lives acts as an umbrella goal for all of the patient safety and quality improvements projects taking place at GWH and elsewhere across Swindon.
