Making the safety of patients everyone's highest priority

Welcome to the
Patient Safety First Campaign

The Patient Safety First Campaign has been created to change the culture within the NHS; to one that makes the safety of patients the highest priority and makes all avoidable death and harm unacceptable.

In response to the worldwide issue of improving patient safety, the Patient Safety First Campaign seeks to provide NHS staff with the knowledge and support they need to take simple steps to improve the safety of patients in their care.
