The LSCA Annual Dinner takes place on Thursday 13 June 2019 at the Royal College of Physicians, Regent’s Park. Designed by British architect Sir Denys Lasdun in 1964, the building is one of only 10 Grade I listed post-war buildings in England. The Royal College of Physicians was founded by a Royal Charter from Henry VIII in 1518.

A sparkling wine reception and canapes will be followed by a three-course meal, including wine, coffee and petit fours, accompanied by words of welcome from the president, Helen Brennan, insights from ICAEW president for 2019/20 Fiona Wilkinson and inspiration from pilot and human factors specialist Martin Bromiley.

Bromiley will have spent the day before at a Clinical Human Factors Group (CHFG) conference at the Royal College of Nursing. Bromiley, a working airline pilot and chair of the CHFG, a charity he founded, will give the opening welcome speech to attendees at the conference: ‘Safer Healthcare by Design’. Speakers with a wide range of expertise, including clinicians, human factors specialists and NHS procurement professionals, will then explore how design and procurement in medical devices and systems can proactively improve patient safety.

Estimates of the number of preventable deaths in the NHS vary, but there could be as many as 1,000 a month. It’s likely that design of medical devices and services is a contributing factor in a significant proportion of these preventable deaths. The work of the CHFG is vital in creating a safe space for open discussion and collaborative working across a range of disciplines.

A charity draw will take place at the LSCA dinner, with proceeds supporting the CHFG’s work.

Tickets are available for £90 plus VAT, £820 plus VAT for a table of 10 and £45 plus VAT for members qualified within the last ten years.
