Sign up to Safety – NHS England – 24 June 2014

“Today, the Secretary of State for Health launched a new campaign to make the NHS the safest healthcare system in the world, building on the recommendations of the Berwick Advisory Group. The campaign has set out a three-year shared objective to save 6,000 lives and halve avoidable harm as part of our journey towards ensuring patients get harm free care every time, everywhere.

The Sign up to Safety campaign is for everyone in the NHS. It will generate a movement which places the safety of patients as a top priority in everything the NHS does. NHS England, Department of Health, Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, NHS Litigation Authority and CQC have all agreed to sign up to safety and have made a commitment to align their organisations’ work with the campaign, which will be led by Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive of Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

“How Safe is my Hospital” site launched – eHealth Insider– 24 July 2014

“The Department of Health has launched a website that will let the public compare hospitals in England based on a number of safety indicators.

The website, called ‘How Safe is my Hospital’, is part of NHS Choices and will include indicators such as ward level staffing levels, incident reporting levels, pressure ulcers, falls and how the hospital is complying with patient safety alerts.

The launch is part of Hunt’s ‘Sign up to Safety’ campaign to crack down on unsafe care and preventable deaths. It aims to save up to 6000 lives over the next three years.”
