Get involved in improving patient safety

Your opportunity to lead improvements in patient safety

The Safer Care team works with trusts across England to improve patient safety. 

The main focus is around education and training; building the technical capabilities of frontline staff and helping senior managers to develop organisational competence. 

Leading Improvement in Patient Safety (LIPS) is a comprehensive programme developed to give NHS trusts the passion, skills and confidence to eliminate harm to patients. 

By signing up to the programme you will develop organisational plans to improve patient safety and will build teams responsible for driving improvement across your organisation. 

Click here to apply for the fourth wave of the LIPS programme.

The programme engages staff at different levels of an organisation – from chief executives and non-executive teams through to medical and nursing directors and patient safety managers. 

The Safer Care team is already working with 66 trusts to embed patient safety in all local service improvement  initiatives.   

“Involvement in the programme has helped drive the patient safety agenda forward and has added credibility to our initiatives.  We are developing my current role in risk management to be focused on patient safety and this would not have happened without the course.” Risk Management Advisor, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

The current LIPS programme is for acute trusts.  We are working on developing a similar programme for primary care, which we hope to be available in early 2009.
