Professor Russell Mannion from HSMC, gives his Inaugural Lecture.

Recent high profile reports into serious failings in hospital quality, most notably the standard of care provided at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, have reawakened concerns over the quality and safety of care provided in NHS hospitals. Drawing on Professor Mannion's own research, this lecture explores the organisational determinants of hospital quality and discusses the key theoretical and practical challenges in measuring, assessing, and delivering good quality healthcare.

This lecture will take place in the Lecture Theatre, Barber Institute of Fine Art with a reception to follow in the Barber Foyer.
