The UK Patient Safety Event

About this Event

Patient safety has made great progress since the publication of To err is human 20 years ago but there is much more to do. The NHS & the healthcare sector in general is working hard to understand the relationship between normal human behaviour and systems that determine patient safety.

The mistaken belief persists that patient safety is about individual effort. People too often fear blame and close ranks, losing sight of the need to improve. More can be done to share safety insight and empower people – patients and staff – with the skills, confidence and mechanisms to improve safety. Getting this right could save almost 1,000 extra lives and £100 million in care costs each year from 2023/24. The potential exists to reduce claims provision by around £750 million per year by 2025.
