Improving safety

Sign up to Safety

We’ve pledged to listen to patients, carers and staff, learning from what they say when things go wrong and taking action to improve patient safety.

Sign up to Safety is a campaign that aims to make the NHS the safest healthcare system in the world, building on the recommendations of the Berwick Advisory Group.
The ambition is to halve avoidable harm in the NHS over the next three years and save 6,000 lives as a result. By signing up to the campaign organisations commit to listening to patients, carers and staff, taking action to improve patient safety and helping to ensure patients get harm free care every time, everywhere.

Speak Out Safely

This trust supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign.

SOS logoThis means we want every member of our staff to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way.
We promise that where staff identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, fully investigate and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how we have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.
Whether you are a permanent employee, an agency or temporary staff member, or a volunteer, please speak up when you feel something is wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely.
