Patient Safety

Patient safety is the guiding principle of all who serve in the NHS – the first and most important lesson staff should learn is how to act safely. Our work on education and training for patient safety looks at how NHS England can best support individuals and the system as a whole to deliver this.

Please use this link for more information. This gives information about the Patient Safety Syllabus and its implementation.

The initial part of this implementation is the Patient Safety Syllabus Training Level 1 – Essentials of Patient Safety “Essentials of patient safety for all staff”. This can be accessed via The Learning Hub in the link above, which has a range of Patient Safety learning resources to explore. It is also available directly by the e Learning for Health portal (eLfH).
