Developing a patient safety strategy for the NHS

Closed 15 Feb 2019

Opened 14 Dec 2018

Overview

We are developing proposals for a new national patient safety strategy to support the NHS to be the safest healthcare system in the world.

The strategy is being developed alongside the NHS Long Term Plan and will be relevant to all parts of the NHS, be that physical or mental health care, in or out of hospital and primary care.

Why We Are Consulting

To make sure the strategy works for patients, NHS staff and providers, we are consulting on our proposals. Your opinions will help us shape and refine the final version of our national patient safety strategy, which we intend to publish in Spring 2019.
