Thanks to the National Patient Safety strategy, a renewed focus on the principle of continuous safety improvement, underpinned by a safety culture and effective safety system, has swept across the NHS. At the heart of this lies the aim of a zero-avoidable harm environment, which has taken on a whole extra meaning since Covid-19 reached the UK, particularly around infection prevention and control.
The adoption of new technologies, enhancements in education and training, or complete redesign in working practices all play their part in risk reduction, and partnership working is fundamental to these developments.
This award will recognise those projects and partnerships that have in some way improved the identification and reduction of risk to patients or helped develop a culture in which incidents are reliably reported, investigated, and learnt from. The partnership may or may not have patient safety as its primary goal, yet demonstrable improvements in patient care and the avoidance of harm are what the judges are looking to recognise in this award.
- This award is open to any private or not-for-profit organisation which works in partnership with an NHS organisation
- These can be single partnerships or joint working projects, but must demonstrate evidence from the past two years up until the awards deadline date
