Sign Up to Safety

Newsdate: 16 September 2014

Listen, Learn, Act - Listening to patients, carers and staff, learning from what they say when things go wrong and take action to improve patients' safety.

Sign up to Safety is a new national patient safety campaign that was announced in March 2014 by the Secretary of State for Health. It launched on 24th June 2014 with the mission to strengthen patient safety in the NHS and make it the safest healthcare system in the world.  The Secretary of State for Health set out the ambition of halving avoidable harm in the NHS over the next three years, and saving 6,000 lives as a result. This is supported by a campaign that aims to listen to patients, carers and staff, learn from what they say when things go wrong and take action to improve patient’s safety helping to ensure patients get harm free care every time, everywhere.

The Trust ‘signed up’ to this campaign in August 2014, setting out our actions in response to five Sign up to Safety pledges:

We are committed to turning these actions into a safety improvement plan which will show how the Trust intends to save lives and reduce harm for patients over the next 3 years.
