NHS Improvement Patient Safety Strategy

January 09, 2019 at 8:04 PM

NHS Improvement are developing proposals for a new national patient safety strategy to support the NHS to be the safest healthcare system in the world.

The strategy is being developed alongside the NHS Long Term Plan and will be relevant to all parts of the NHS, be that physical or mental health care, in or out of hospital and primary care.

Why They Are Consulting

To make sure the strategy works for patients, NHS staff and providers, NHSI are consulting on their proposals. Your opinions will help shape and refine the final version of their national patient safety strategy, which will be published in Spring 2019.

You will first need to download and read  Developing a patient safety strategy for the NHS consultation document.  

An easy read version of the consultation document and questions will be available at https://engage.improvement.nhs.uk/policy-strategy-and-delivery-management/patient-safety-strategy/ shortly.

Consultation closes 15th February, 2019.
