Patient Safety

The NHS Patient Safety Strategy suggests that successfully sharing safety insight and empowering people – patients and staff – with the skills, confidence and mechanisms to improve safety could save almost 1,000 extra lives and £100 million in care costs each year from 2023/24. The potential exists to reduce claims provision by around £750 million per year by 2025.

From identifying serious complications such as sepsis or deterioration much earlier, to medicine safety, falls prevention and maternity care, we are working locally, nationally and internationally to improve patient safety. We spread and adopt patient-centred, evidence-based innovations, and connect people with shared problems in an atmosphere that generates solutions to their challenges.

Our process, like our values, is about being Open, Kind and Brave. And can only be achieved by working together. Our approach is Different and prioritises creating a safe environment where the system to learn more about itself and be discussed in an open and honest way.
