This conference focuses on patient involvement and partnership for patient safety including implementing the New National Framework for involving patients in patient safety, and developing the role of the Patient Safety Partner (PSP) in  your organisation or service.

The National Framework for involving patients in patient safety was released by NHS England in June 2021.

The NHS Patient Safety Strategy includes the ambition for all safety-related clinical governance committees (or equivalents) in NHS organisations to include two PSPs by June 2022, and for them to have received the required training by June 2023.”

NHS England/Improvement May 2022

"The Framework for involving patients in patient safety is relevant to all NHS trusts and commissioners and should also be useful to other NHS settings, including primary care and community services, that are considering how they can involve patients in safety. Integrated care systems should consider how they can involve patients as part of their safety governance processes as they develop and mature.”

NHS England June 2021

“The introduction of PSPs should be considered the start of a journey that may significantly change the way some organisations approach patient involvement. It requires power sharing, a commitment to openness and transparency between staff and patients, as well as good leadership; it must not be tokenistic. For this reason, the framework advocates organisations first assess their ‘readiness’ to engage PSPs. Before an organisation recruits PSPs, its most senior managers should consider if they are ready as leaders to provide an effective culture to support PSPs. Tokenistic attempts to introduce PSPs are likely to be detrimental overall.”
