In June 2019, the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN), established by NHS England in 2013 and re-licensed from April 2018 to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS, invited comment on its proposed patient safety strategy. The strategy aims to demonstrate the added value that AHSNs and Patient Safety Collaboratives can bring to patient safety by working much more collaboratively.
Chief Executive of Patient Safety Learning, Helen Hughes, has responded to the strategy. Helen comments: "We see the potential of the AHSNs: the capability and expertise, the desire to make a real difference and a belief in collaboration. We want to see this potential realised, and Patient Safety Learning wants to help."
AHSN will launch its strategy at NHS Expo in September.
