Welcome to the to the NHS Safety Thermometer technical and analytical network.  This network was set up to be a virtual meeting space for technical and analytical leads who are involved in the implementation of the NHS Safety Thermometer. 

Experience from the first year pilot showed that organisations may require support not only in the use of the Safety Thermometer but also in terms of fully understanding the definitions, exclusions and inclusions upon which it depends and the use of the data it generates.  This network has a wide membership from SHAs and Quality Observatories and by sharing experiences and issues the path to full implementation of the NHS Safety Thermometer can be smoothed! 

The data generated by the NHS Safety Thermometer is rich and, in some instances, unique.  Encouraging the effective and appropriate use of the data is a challenge for all information and analytical professionals but through networking with others we can make the best of all the safety information available to the NHS and provide a full picture of where improvement is happening and help our clinical colleagues evidence and spread their innovations in making sure care is safe for all our patients.
