    At Patient Safety Learning we seek to harness the knowledge, insights, enthusiasm and commitment of health and social care organisations, professionals and patients for system-wide change and the reduction of avoidable harm. The scale of this challenge remains immense. Each year, millions of patients suffer injuries or die because of avoidable harm in healthcare. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that in high-income countries 1 in every 10 patients is harmed when receiving hospital care.[1] In the UK, the NHS pre-Covid estimate was that there were around 11,000 avoidable deaths a

    I love and support the NHS. But when things go wrong for patients and service users, the system is often too slow to change or respond effectively. I have been through complaints, the Ombudsman and Inquest processes around the poor end of life care of my late mother. Those processes took years and were almost as stressful as those last few days of my mother’s life. I would not do it again. At the time, I reported the incident in detail to the CQC (inspectors), to the CCG (commissioners), to Healthwatch (local and national), but I noted no evidence of change. In fact, the CQC continued for

    Patients should “make their own way to hospital” if they can do so during Wednesday’s strike by ambulance workers, a cabinet minister said yesterday, as the government warned that the industrial action would put lives at risk. Senior government figures said that ambulance unions had still not agreed national criteria for what conditions would be considered life threatening and responded to during the strike. Steve Barclay, the health secretary, is understood to be writing to all striking unions, including nurses, seeking discussions on patient safety. Yesterday Oliver Dowden, th

    The World Health Organization states that unsafe care is one of the top ten leading causes of death and disability worldwide, with the NHS estimating that there are around 11,000 avoidable deaths annually due to safety concerns. However, despite a range of international and national initiatives aimed at reducing avoidable harm, it remains a persistent, wide-scale problem. A key reason for this is the implementation gap, the difference between what we know improves patient safety and what is done in practice. In this report Patient Safety Learning highlights six specific policy areas where

    Delphi study participants Participants were from the seven regions identified by NHS England. The study revisited several questions from round one to gather further knowledge and understanding of the responses received. The debrief was not undertaken due to all team members not being present, staff wanting to go home, current culture and list overruns. Key initial findings of Delphi study round two The second round facilitated a broader engagement in the literature, as well highlighting a number of reasons why full compliance has not yet been universally achieved.

    Nanette Barragán, US representative for California’s 44th Congressional District, has announced the introduction of new legislation intended to establish a National Patient Safety Board (NPSB) as a non-punitive, collaborative, independent agency to address safety in healthcare. This landmark legislation is a critical step to improve safety for patients and healthcare providers by coordinating existing efforts within a single independent agency solely focused on addressing safety in health care through data-driven solutions. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, medical error was the third leadi

    What is the National Patient Safety Board? Since early 2021 there has been a growing coalition of healthcare organisations and groups calling to create the National Patient Safety Board in the United States.[1] This is a proposed federal agency with the goal of preventing and reducing patient safety events in healthcare settings, modelled after the National Transportation Board and the Commercial Aviation Safety Team.[2] Legislative proposal Nanette Barragán, US representative for California’s 44th Congressional District, has announced the introduction of new legislation intended

    A report commissioned by Jeremy Hunt before he became Chancellor has highlighted how the pandemic ’stopped progress on patient safety in its tracks’ and called for more accurate data to be published on a range of measures. The National State of Patient Safety was funded by Mr Hunt’s Patient Safety Watch charity and produced by Imperial College London’s Institute of Global Health Innovation. It highlights a rise in rates of MRSA and C. difficile since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, as well as an increase in deaths due to venous thromboembolism and hip fractures. The report said t

    Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra startled a recent meeting of senior health system leaders by declaring in opening remarks that a plane crash had just killed all 200 passengers. He immediately added that this hadn’t really happened; he’d said it only to illustrate the toll taken by medical error. The 14 November meeting at which Becerra spoke signalled a renewed commitment by HHS to preventing patient harm as it launched an “Action Alliance to Advance Patient Safety.” The Alliance aims to recruit the nation’s largest health systems as participants. “We’re losi
