Patient Safety Awards - 6 July 2015

As NHS budgets come under increasing pressure it is vital that excellent practice taking place in individual organisations is identified and replicated or adapted more widely. This will not only increase patient safety, but will also reduce expenditure associated with patient safety incidents. The Patient Safety Awards aim to recognise the best patient safety initiatives so that they can be shared across the health service. The awards are also an invaluable way for individuals and organisations to increase the profile of their work.
