Implementing the NHS Patient Safety Strategy at a local level

This Conference is now Closed

Follow the conference on Twitter #NHSPatientSafety2019

This conference will focus on Implementing the July 2019 National NHS Patient Safety Strategy into practice at a local level. The conference will also discuss the role of Patient Safety Partners.  

“Patient safety is about maximising the things that go right and minimising the things that go wrong for people experiencing healthcare… Our vision is for the NHS to continuously improve patient safety. Safety is not an absolute concept and has neither a single objective measure nor a defined end point. Rather, it responds to patient needs and system priorities.”

The NHS Patient Safety Strategy, NHS Improvement, July 2019 

“Patient safety has made great progress since the publication of To err is human 20 years ago but there is much more to do. The NHS does not yet know enough about how the interplay of normal human behaviour and systems determines patient safety. The mistaken belief persists that patient safety is about individual effort. People too often fear blame and close ranks, losing sight of the need to improve. More can be done to share safety insight and empower people – patients and staff – with the skills, confidence and mechanisms to improve safety. Getting this right 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.”
