The guardian of safe working hours is still a relatively new role, created by the 2016 terms and conditions of service for doctors and dentists in training in order to provide an independent person to ensure the safeguards in the new contract are upheld.
Hosted by NHS Employers, this event is the second national conference for guardians of safe working hours. It is an opportunity for guardians across the country to meet each other and network on a national scale, develop a broader understanding of their role, and hear about experiences of the 2016 contract so far.
There will also be experts on hand from NHS Employers as well as a range of other national bodies, to share knowledge and answer any questions you may have.

Who should attend this event
This event is for guardians of safe working hours only. If a trust’s guardian of safe working hours is unable to attend, they are permitted to send a deputy in order to feed back to them. In the unlikely event that your trust has not appointed a guardian or is still working under temporary arrangements, a nominated person to represent the trust will be permitted to attend.
