The aim of the Safer Care programme is to build an NHS where every member of staff has the passion, confidence and skills to eliminate harm to patients. We are doing this by:

  • providing education and training to build individual technical competence
  • developing senior leaders to build organisational competence
  • starting with hospitals where the evidence base is strongly developed
  • working with GPs and other staff groups to develop an understanding and approach to safety improvement in care outside of the acute setting.
Our work began in July 2007 and is expected to run for 3 years

John Wright, Clinical Director, Bradford“Health professionals are passionate about efforts to save lives. Senior managers want reassurance about governance standards. Patients want to know that their hospital is safe. It is a natural top priority.”
