It is crucial that operating theatres are functioning at their optimum level. Not only do theatres provide critical patient interventions, but they are also responsible for a substantial proportion of both the total expenditure and income generated at every acute hospital.  This Summit focuses on the Effective Operating Theatre; Improving Quality, Safety, Productivity and Patient Experience.  By attending, you will look at what we have learned from the Productive Operating Theatre Programme.

Infection Prevention and Control


12 July 2017



FREE PLACES for AfPP Members

In February 2017, working closely with NHSE, NHSI, and PHE, Knowlex brought together over 400 healthcare professionals in London to drill deeper into how these announcements could be developed into feet on the ground activities. The themes for discussion and policy definitions included, gram-negative infection and e-coli, UTIs and Sepsis. This event also included the ongoing battle to avoid the hanging sword of Damocles that is AMR and included an overview of the 2017-19 CQUIN quality premiums. To ensure comprehensive national access to these vital potentially life-saving and educational programmes we have been asked to share the London learnings with those who were unable to join us. The themes from London will form the core agenda for our summer conference in Leeds this year. We will seek to bring together industry innovation, NHS best practice and case studies to present a truly interactive knowledge exchange. Dawn Stott, AfPP CEO will also be speaking at the event.

We hope you can join us in Leeds on the 12th July 2017. For more information visit the website.

To apply for the funded (Free) places AfPP members can contact or by phone on 0161 696 4868.

Setting up and Running Virtual Clinics


9 October 2017



De Vere West One, London

Chaired by Mr Bibhas Roy Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Virtual Orthopaedic Clinic Lead at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, this conference focuses on setting up and running virtual clinics. Virtual clinics are increasingly being used in healthcare to reduce outpatient appointments, reduce DNA rates, save money and ensure the patients that do need to be seen face to face by a consultant have enough dedicated time. A large number of appointments can be replaced by virtual clinics, for decision making, consultation and outcome analysis.
