This framework provides guidance on how the NHS can involve people in their own safety as well as improving patient safety in partnership with staff: maximising the things that go right and minimising the things that go wrong for people receiving healthcare.



The appendices of the main framework document contain a number of resources and templates providers can adapt for use in their own organisation. For ease of use, these have also been made available as Microsoft Word versions.
