We have signed up to safety

SU2S A5 flyer

We are holding a launch event from 10am to 12pm on 31 July in lecture theatre one, Education Centre, and are asking as many staff, patients and public to attend. Please come and join our campaign. If you would like to attend, please email or tweet us @UHBristolNHS.

We are proud to announce that we have launched a new three year patient safety improvement campaign called 'Sign up to Safety'.

This project is part of a national campaign that aims to make the NHS in England the safest healthcare system in the world. The ambition for the NHS in England is to halve avoidable harm in the NHS and save 6,000 lives as a result.

Sign up to Safety aims to deliver harm-free care for every patient, every time, everywhere.  It champions openness and honesty and supports everyone to improve the safety of patients.

This ambition is bigger than any individual or organisation and achieving it requires us all to unite behind this common purpose. We need to give patients confidence that we are doing all we can to ensure that the care they receive will be safe and effective at all times.

What is unique and fundamentally different is that this campaign is about bottom up, locally owned change and it is for everyone.
