The National Patient Safety Improvement Programme (NPSIP) is the largest safety improvement initiative in the history of the NHS. Since its inception in 2014, the programme has been addressing national patient safety concerns. It works with patients, carers, clinicians, managers and safety experts, supporting the system to improve and uphold safety as a top priority.
The Patient Safety Collaboratives, delivered by the AHSN Network, work collectively on a number of national work streams with staff in hospitals, community settings, primary care and care homes.
