Review of the academic health science networks’ patient safety collaboratives

A report from the King’s Fund discusses the progress and impact made by England’s patient safety collaboratives (PSCs) in their first four years.

The report commissioned by the AHSN Network notes how interest is shifting from supporting the improvement of individual services to improving how different services work together in local systems. It highlights the role the PSC programme has had in creating a movement for change and cultivating a shared vision among health and care organisations. It also suggests some areas PSCs and national NHS bodies could focus on to further support innovation, quality improvement and patient safety.
