We are seeking motivated and interested individuals who want to help influence and improve patient safety at Sheffield Teaching hospitals by becoming Patient Safety Partners.

Patient Safety Partners

In June 2021, the new ‘Framework for Involving Patients in Patient Safety’ was published by NHS England. This framework sets out approaches and standards that help to make a positive difference to how patient safety is viewed and managed in the NHS.

A key part of the framework introduces Patient Safety Partners; empowering patients and their carers to be involved in their own safety, as well as being partners alongside staff in improving patient safety in NHS organisations.

As a Patient Safety Partner, you will make a vital contribution to improving patient safety. It is vital that the people we serve are involved in decisions about ensuring our services are safe and of a high quality, and the Patient Safety Partner role is key to ensuring that we are working together on this.

At present we are recruiting Patient Safety Partners to join a number of our groups including:

  • Medications Safety Group
  • Deteriorating Patients Group
  • Violence and Aggression

If you are interested and want to find out more, please take a look through this recruitment pack which outlines what the role involves.
