We aim to inspire & teach NHS staff from all departments as well as patients on how to adapt to systems change in a way that brings about efficiency & value.

Excellent Feedback from Serious Hazards of Transfusion Conference


​We were recently sent the official feedback from the SHOT blood service conference we spoke at in July. 

This year saw record numbers of delegates, which could be partly attributable to having more international delegates from the IHN meeting. 

There were 270 online submissions for the evaluation survey, which was a response rate of 85.7% (the evaluation survey was sent to 315 individuals, excluding exhibitors). 

Trevor Dale spoke at the conference about Walking the Tightrope.

The feedback on the conference was exceptionally positive, and we were very happy to receive top scores on most informative and best performance of the speakers.
