It features dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to healthcare related media & organisations. Each year more people die in health care accidents than in road accidents. Increasingly complex medical treatments and overstretched health systems create more opportunities for things to go wrong, and they do.

Self-regulation by professional and industry groups is now widely regarded as insufficient, and government is stepping in. In "Patient Safety First", leading experts survey the governance of clinical care. Framed within a theory of responsive regulation, core regulatory approaches to patient safety are analysed for their effectiveness, including information systems, corporate and public institution governance models, the design of safe systems, the role of medical boards, open disclosure and public inquiries.
