Follow the conference on X #PatientPSP2024

This conference focuses on patient involvement and partnership for patient safety including implementing the National Framework for involving patients in patient safety, and developing the role of the Patient Safety Partner (PSP) in your organisation or service. The conference will also cover engagement of patients and families in serious incidents, and patient involvement under the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework.

“Patients and their carers should be present, powerful partners.”

NHS England September 2023

“The NHS patient safety strategy emphasises the importance of involving patients as partners in their own care, as well as the vital role of their families and carers, and other lay people, in working with care providers to help improve the quality of NHS care… Patient Safety Partners are patients, carers, family members or other lay people recruited to work in partnership with staff to influence and improve the governance and leadership of safety within an NHS organisation. The framework recommended patient safety partners be recruited across healthcare organisations to sit on patient safety committees"

NHS England September 2023
