Please of your say on this public consultation.

Framework for involving patients in patient safety’

NHS England and Improvement is asking for feedback on its framework to support patients and carers to be involved in the patient safety strategy.

The strategy was published in July 2019, and working with patients, carers, lay people, NHS frontline staff and commissioners, there is now a draft ‘Framework for involving patients in patient safety’, which we are now consulting on ahead of publishing a final version expected early 2021.

It is in 2 sections:

1)      Describes how organisations should support patients, their families and carers to be directly involved in their own or their loved one’s safety;

2)      Describes how organisations should support patients, carers, family members or other lay people to be involved in wider governance of safety activities.
