The Trust’s Head of Patient Safety will be speaking at our next community forum which takes place next week.

Members of the public have an opportunity to find out more about the work we’re doing to improve the care and treatment we deliver to our patients at this virtual event which takes place from 10 to 11.30am on Wednesday, 15 February.

Our Head of Patient Safety, Tam Moorcroft, will be talking about the new incident reporting system, Patient Safety Incident Response Framework which we recently introduced as a replacement to the Serious Incident Framework (2015).

The new framework represents a significant shift in the way the NHS responds to patient safety incidents and is a major step towards establishing a safety management system across the NHS. It is a key part of the NHS patient safety strategy.  You can find out more about this framework on the NHS website.

The virtual event follows the successful session which was held in December where members of the public had the opportunity to find out more and provide their feedback on the development of our five-year clinically led strategy which will be published soon.

Quality and Safety Lead, Vikki Baldock, responsible for patient engagement, said: “We’re really keen to engage with our patients on issues that matter to them and this next virtual meeting is a great opportunity to find out how we will involve our patients in the way we manage safety incidents.

“And as always there will be the opportunity for people who do attend to share their experiences of using our 999 and 111 services.”
