Latest thinking

Through Sign up to Safety, and for the first time since patient safety became a major focus for healthcare 15 years ago, we have a better picture of the incredible work underway across the whole of England.

We are immensely privileged to be in a position where we have this national oversight and our aim is to take what we learn and use it to support locally led, self-directed safety improvement.

To help us all enhance our understanding of patient safety for the future, here the team share their thoughts, experiences and insights on the common challenges we face, the priorities for Sign up to Safety, and what it really means to create a safety culture, a just culture, and a learning culture.
