    Betsy Lehman, a reporter and mother of two young girls, was battling breast cancer. While in the hospital, her care team made a series of fatal mistakes, giving her four times the intended dose of a powerful chemotherapy drug. Her death at age 39 in 1994 catalysed a national movement to improve patient safety. While progress has been made, surveys show that between 20-25% of Massachusetts residents have experienced a medical error. In honour of Betsy and every patient, the Betsy Lehman Center are advancing strategies to improve the safety of health care in the Commonwealth and beyond.

    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

    A world-famous hospital has a culture where some staff may put research interests above patient safety, according to an external investigation. A report published yesterday cited some employees at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children Foundation Trust as saying “they feel that the hospital sometimes put too much emphasis on pushing the boundaries of science” and “are concerned [this] may lead to a culture where some prioritise innovation over safety in their practice”. The trust’s medical director Sanjiv Sharma commissioned the report into the effectiveness of its safety procedur

    The post of Patient Safety Commissioner for England was created in response to a recommendation of the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review (also known as the Cumberlege Review), which examined the response of the healthcare system to the harmful side effects of three medical interventions: hormone pregnancy tests, sodium valproate and pelvic mesh implants. These interventions had resulted in a truly shocking degree of avoidable harm to patients over a period of decades. A key recommendation of this Review was the creation of a Patient Safety Commissioner to represent t

    NHS Supply Chain's vision and purpose is to support and enable the NHS to save lives and improve health. We are part of the NHS family and so share the mission of safer, better patient care every day. This means many things in the context of the supplies the NHS needs to provide care. It means understanding how the NHS delivers care for its patients. Understanding how doctors, nurses, midwives, allied health professionals (AHPs), in essence, all staff in the hospitals, in the wider community and on the ambulances access and use the products that they need every minute, every hour, every d

    The outgoing chief investigator of the national safety watchdog has described his frustration with the organisation’s ‘ambivalent’ relationship with NHS England. Keith Conradi, who is due to retire from the Health Safety Investigation Branch in July, said he did not think he had “ever really spoken to any of the hierarchy in NHS England”. He added “their priorities are elsewhere”. In an interview with health commentator Roy Lilley for the Institute for Health and Social Care Management, Mr Conradi also described HSIB’s relationship with NHSE as “ambivalent”. “It wobbled along th
