Teamwork has never been more important than during recent months. Despite the challenges of covid-19 every day across the NHS there are teams which come together to find new ways to further improve patient safety. Some are specifically dedicated to safety or quality, taking responsibility for the performance of the entire organisation on these agendas. Others are sub-groups of larger teams – a group of safety leads within a ward nursing team, for instance.
This award recognises a team which has secured truly outstanding improvements in patient safety through specific initiatives designed to reduce harm and create a better patient experience.
Any NHS or public sector health or social care team that has come together to tackle and improve the patient safety culture and outcomes for their organisation. Entries are welcomed from collaborative groups from across organisations including those which aren’t solely NHS bodies.
