FE CornishWhen we chose the title of our Autumn Meeting a year ago, 'Patients' and Doctors' Safety: Can Women Change the Culture of the NHS?', we could not possibly have known how topical it would be. Patient Safety has never left the headlines in the recent lambasting of doctors and the NHS. Our speakers, including Dame Fiona Caldicott, Vivienne Nathanson and Vicky Osgood, were inspirational and generated lively discussion. Kim Peters and Michelle Ryan discussed their work from Exeter University on Role Models and the need for role models at all levels, not just the ones at the top of the profession who might not seem attainable. We had about 100 delegates, ranging from medical students to professors, so opportunities for talking and networking were ideal.
