Patient Safety Partner
We are committed to offering safe services and need your help.
The Patient Safety Partner (PSP) is a new and evolving role developed by NHS England to help improve patient safety across healthcare in the UK. This is part of the new Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF).
Here at the Trust, we are looking forward to welcoming PSPs to work alongside our people (staff), patients, and population to influence and improve safety across our services. PSPs can be patients, carers, family members or other lay people (including NHS and Social Care staff from another organisation).
This is a great opportunity to share your interests, experiences, and skills to help develop the new PSP role and be a part of our team.
Could you become an SWBH Patient Safety Partner?
As a PSP you will be able to act as a ‘knowledge broker’, with insight as a user of services across different parts of the NHS. Or you may have experience of avoidable harm and can therefore help inform the development of safety solutions that cross organisational boundaries.
You will provide a different perspective on patient safety, one that is not influenced by organisational bias or historical systems, providing insight from a different perspective on patient safety.
