Consultations on patient safety

Posted on 12 February 2020 (Permalink)

Health Education England (HEE) is consulting on a patient safety syllabus which has been drafted with the involvement of the AHSN Network. This will be the first ever system-wide patient safety syllabus, providing a consistent approach for all staff. HEE intends to design and deliver an e-learning programme in the Foundations of Patient Safety, which is planned to be available by April 2021. Visit the website to find out more. You have until Friday 28 February to respond to the online survey.


Another consultation from the NHS is asking for feedback on the role of new patient safety specialists. Each organisation in the NHS is expected to have a person in place by June 2020. You can read the draft requirements for the patient safety specialist here. The online survey closes on Thursday 12 March.
