Consultation on a national patient safety strategy for the NHS


We have launched a consultation on our proposals for a National patient safety strategy for the NHS.

We are developing proposals for a new national patient safety strategy to support the NHS to be the safest healthcare system in the world. The strategy is being developed alongside the NHS Long Term Plan and will be relevant to all parts of the NHS, be that physical or mental health care, in or out of hospital and primary care.

Have your say

To make sure the strategy works for patients, NHS staff and providers, we are currently consulting on our proposals. 

On our consultation web page you will find a document detailing our proposals, alongside an online survey giving you an opportunity to have your say on our proposed plans for a national patient safety strategy. 

The survey closes 15 February 2019.

Next steps

We intend to publish a final version of the national patient safety strategy in Spring 2019.
