The North West Coast Patient Safety Collaborative is one of fifteen Collaboratives based in AHSNs across England. The collaborative focusses on improving patient safety, reducing harm and improving quality of care. Patient safety within the Innovation Agency provides a unique opportunity to bring together NHS organisations, academia, third sector, patients and industry partners to work across a defined geographical area to develop new innovations for patient safety and to spread and sustain good practice.

The Patient Safety team have developed the new strategy for Better Safer Care in collaboration with stakeholders across the North West Coast. This involves using the knowledge, evidence base and best practice, data intelligence and local geographical insights to develop areas of focus over the next two years.


The strategy was finalised in the summer of 2016 and can be downloaded below:
