Sign up to Safety

About us

More in this section

Sign up to Safety is a NHS patient safety campaign launched in July 2014, aiming to reduce avoidable harm to patients by 50% within three years

We signed up to the campaign in October 2014 and its five pledges to:

  1. put patient safety first
  2. continually learn
  3. be honest
  4. collaborate
  5. be supportive.

What we’re doing

To support the campaign, we’re focusing our efforts on these areas:

  • maternity – reducing the number of obstetric anal sphincter injuries
  • medicine errors – reducing the number of medicine errors when patients leave hospital
  • the deteriorating child – improving care for young patients whose health is rapidly deteriorating
  • malnutrition – improving how we recognise and treat patients at risk of malnutrition.
