Seminar Series

The aim of the Quality and Safety group’s seminar series is to bring together academics, clinicians and NHS managers in an intellectual and social environment to exchange knowledge, experience, and ideas. The format of each seminar is intended to encourage a range of perspectives and engagement.

Invited guests include researchers from our partner institutions (Universities of Leeds and York), Yorkshire & Humber research partners, Academic Health Science Network colleagues, Trust managers, clinicians, and PGR students.

All the seminars are held here at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, in the Sovereign Lecture Theatre of the Bradford Royal Infirmary.
