Patient safety is about maximising the things that go right and minimising the things that go wrong. It is integral to the NHS’ definition of quality in healthcare, alongside effectiveness and patient experience.
This strategy, from NHS Improvement, sets out what the NHS will do to achieve its vision to continuously improve patient safety.
The Innovators magazine features the people behind the innovations, and explores the great work going on across England, including medicines optimisation work at West Hampshire CCG.
The Network also launched the impact report for 2018/19, which breaks down some of the big numbers and achievements from around the AHSNs over the past year.
