Up to 600 people attended the conference, representing patients and a wide range of healthcare staff working in the area of patient safety across agencies including the HSE, voluntary agencies, regulatory bodies and patient safety experts. Dan's work with the innovative virtual clinic has been recognised for delivering real results and benefits to patients of the colorectal service at Beaumont Hospital.
