Involving patients in Patient Safety

NHS South West London CCG welcomes the new ‘Framework for Involving patients in Patient Safety’  released on 30 June 2021. The approaches and standards set out in the framework will help to make a positive difference in how patient safety is viewed and managed.

A key part of the framework introduces Patient Safety Partners (PSPs), which will enable patients and their carers to be involved in their own safety, as well as being partners alongside staff in improving patient safety in NHS organisations. We welcome the role that Patient Safety Partners will play in supporting and contributing to our governance and management processes for patient safety.

NHS South West London CCG will work with providers and partners to ensure the principles and standards in the framework are embedded as we develop our Integrated Care System( ICS).
