Medicines safety model: NHS Improvement wants your views

Medicines safety model: NHS Improvement wants your views

April 9, 2019

As part of the NHS Long Term Plan’s commitment to a national patient safety strategy and the design of a national Medicines Safety Programme, NHS Improvement will be implementing a Medicines Safety Assurance Model that supports local systems in identifying best medicines safety practice across all care settings.

NHS Improvement has launched a consultation to help inform the development of the model and community pharmacy teams are invited to share their valuable insight.

This model aims to drive demonstrable improvements in patient care across an integrated system by encouraging them to self-assess their progress against agreed best practice – whether that practice is delivered in a hospital, the community, general practice or a care home. Alongside a set of published medicines safety metrics this model will support organisations to identify and resolve patient care issues as well as implementing barriers to harmful practice.

The survey will take approximately eight minutes to complete and closes on Friday 3rd May 2019.
