Early Adopters for PSIRF

Mary-Jo Patterson

Recommended Posts

Hi Helen,

Do you know which CCGs nationally have providers who are working as the early adopters of the new patient safety framework and how we would get contact details for the CCG patient safety teams?  It would be helpful to learn more about what their role is and that starting point with their providers so I can feedback to our exec team.


Many Thanks

Hi Mary-Jo,  a very good question and I’d very much like to know the answer! These providers are known by some informally, but I don’t think have been reported publicly. 

Maybe hub members know? @Jon Holt would be able to help on this. @Claire Cox do you know? 

Let’s see if we can collectively source the information to help Mary-Jo.

Thanks Helen, I can confirm that the Isle of Wight is one so in the process of getting the CCG patient safety contact details to get more info for Sussex CCGs. Happy to update the group on anything useful that may support other CCGs.

I know that trusts and CCGs have been contacted regard identifying patient safety specialists. Once these are established there will be nationally supported networks set up. I would guess patient safety specialists will have a role in supporting effective implementation of PSIRF

Sounds good. I know the timeframe has been put back because of the pandemic. Will be really good to get those networks established. Trust and CCGs?

Yes, Trusts and CCGs have been written to asking them to identify their patient safety specialists by November 2020 with intention that those identified will be working full time in the role by April 2021.

Great, thanks for that Jon, really helpful.


@Mary-Jo Patterson a contact from NHSE&I has advised me that they are looking at some kind of event up in new year to share learning from early adopters although nothing has been communicated formally yet so don't think this is set in stone. 

It may be worth putting the feelers out with any contacts you have at NHSE&I whether anything is being planned in your region too
