Patient Safety

The Health Innovation Oxford & Thames Valley Patient Safety and Clinical Improvement programme is building a culture of safety, continuous learning and improvement in line with national, regional and local priorities. This approach is reducing harm and enabling safer care than ever before. The national Patient Safety Collaborative (PSC) programme, established in 2014, is the largest patient safety initiative in the history of the NHS. It is funded and coordinated by NHS England and organised and delivered by England’s 15 Health Innovation Networks. The Oxford PSC is establishing and sustaining relationships with key partners including NHS staff and patients through quality improvement collaboratives, communities of practice and shared learning. This approach is applied locally and at scale with a focus on adopting and spreading best practice from within and beyond the region. The Oxford PSC is embedded in the Health Innovation Oxford & Thames Valley enabling cross-working throughout the organisation and ensuring patient safety is at the forefront of all its programmes.
