Speeding up the best in health and care, together

Patient Safety

The Patient Safety theme looks at patient safety from a system perspective, involving staff, carers and patients. We pay attention to the detail, explore innovation that is evidence based and patient-centered, and connect people with shared problems in an atmosphere that generates solutions to their challenges.

Through exploring new ideas, sharing great practice for making care safer and focusing on what matters to patients, we aim to create positive healthcare experiences for all.

Patient Safety improves the experience of everyone by allowing the system to learn more about itself and be discussed in an open and honest way.
