Safer Surgery Week

Patient Safety First and the Clinical Board for Surgical Safety* are hosting Safer Surgery Week from 24 September.

All trusts in England are using the surgical safety checklist to provide safer surgical care. However, we know through our work that more still needs to be done to eradicate perioperative never events, and to achieve both cultural change and effective implementation of the five steps to safer surgery.
