Do you know what bad practice looks like?
Would you know what to do if you witnessed bad practice?
Would you be willing to act on your concerns?
Join the Queen's Healthcare Leadership Forum (QHLF) for their first event of 2014 - 'Reporting Bad Practice Across Professions' - continuing on with the theme of this academic year - 'Transforming Tomorrow Together'.
This event will bring together a range of professions - social work, medicine, nursing and pharmacy - to explore issues around reporting concerns in healthcare following the recent media interest in so-called 'whistleblowers' in the health service in England, particularly in response to the Francis, Keogh and Berwick Reports of 2013. This event will explore the perspective of Regulators as well as the perspective of Trade Union Representatives, and promises to be a fascinating event for students and health and social care professionals across disciplines.
The event will consist of two ten-minute presentations from the General Medical Council (GMC) and Royal College of Nursing (RCN). This will then be followed by a panel debate consisting of GMC, RCN, Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Council (NIHSCC).
Heather Moorhead, Chair of the NHS Confederation in Northern Ireland (NICON) will Chair the panel discussion on behalf of the QHLF. We are also delighted to welcome Niall Dickson, Chief Executive and Registrar at the General Medical Council to speak to QUB students and NI professionals on this vital topic.
You must register for the event to be able to gain a seat at this unique and interesting event for health and social care students at Queen's and qualified health and social care professionals in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Healthcare Leadership Forum
The Northern Ireland Healthcare Leadership Forum (NIHLF) is a student society founded in 2012 in order to promote excellence in leadership and management in health and social care in Northern Ireland. The Forum provides a website, experience network and events exploring the leadership and service delivery challenges affecting the National Health Service in Northern Ireland. The NIHLF aims to inspire all of those going into healthcare provision to take a role in leading service change and improvement, whether or not they wish to be employed in a formal management role in the future.
The founding principle of the NIHLF is that healthcare professionals in all disciplines are well placed to make decisions about the systems through which healthcare is delivered. The NIHLF is therefore a multi-disciplinary society, intended to appeal to individuals from all healthcare disciplines; from nurses to doctors, physiotherapists to dentists and social workers to pharmacists. Our Constitution requires that there is representation of a variety of different healthcare professions on the Committee so that all professions have a voice in our activities.
An important feature of the society is that emphasis is placed on ‘healthcare’ leadership as opposed to the more myopic term of ‘medical’ leadership. This is to demonstrate the part that nursing staff, pharmacists, dentists and other allied healthcare professionals can play in shaping services for the benefit of patients and we hope that they will feel that they are able to partake in the Forum at all levels in order to make it as multi-disciplinary a forum as possible.
