Work to improve patient safety is delivered by the Wessex
Patient Safety Collaborative, one of 15 Patient Safety Collaboratives (PSCs)
across the country, each funded and nationally co-ordinated by NHS England and
NHS Improvement, and hosted locally by the Academic Health Science Networks
Our PSC is made up of all the NHS providers and commissioners across the region, including hospitals, mental health and community organisations, the ambulance service, primary care, and clinical commissioning groups. It brings together local patients and healthcare staff, all driven by a shared vision to bring about system-wide improvements to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people in the care of our health services.
Our patient safety work programme is informed by the NHS Patient Safety Strategy, and the National Patient Safety Improvement Programmes (known as NatPAtSIP) which are led by NHS England and NHS Improvement. Read more about the NatPatSIP.
