CQC calls for a change in safety culture across the NHS to reduce avoidable harm

19 December 2018 – CQC

England’s chief inspector of hospitals wants a change in culture within the NHS to reduce the number of patients who experience avoidable harm.

In a national report, CQC found that too many people are being injured or suffering unnecessary harm because NHS staff are not supported by sufficient training, and because the complexity of the current patient safety system makes it difficult for staff to ensure that safety is an integral part of everything they do.

The report, Opening the door to change looks at the issues that contribute to the occurrence of never events and wider patient safety incidents in NHS trusts in England.
