“This publication was developed by Monitor for NHS foundation trusts, though its principles apply equally to other NHS settings. It draws on evidence and best practices from UK pilot sites, and also taps the experience of healthcare providers in other developed countries who use similar principles and approaches.

The field research and work with the UK pilot sites took place between October 2009 and March 2010.

The steering group for the publication was a diverse one. Its members were drawn from four organisations: Monitor, the Health Foundation, the National Patient Safety Agency and the Boston Consulting Group.”
