Staff and public urged to help shape new patient safety body

NHS staff, patients and members of the public are being urged to have their say on the shape of a new national patient safety organisation.

The health secretary announced in the summer that he would create an independent function to oversee the investigation of patient safety incidents.

An expert advisory group has been established to collect evidence and make recommendations on the roles and responsibilities of the new body, ahead of its formation in April 2016.

An online survey to capture the views of patients and professionals can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/r/ipsis2015
