The Faculty of Patient Safety

The Faculty of Patient Safety was established in 2015 to set strategic direction on behalf of HEE NE in delivering the Patient Safety Agenda, in order to contribute towards the delivery of high quality compassionate patient care within the region. 

The Faculty of Patient Safety is focused on delivery of four major work streams:

  1. Human Factors.
  2. Simulation.
  3. Technology Enhanced Learning.
  4. Learning from Clinical Incidents and Never Events.

The HEE NE Faculty is a multi-professional, high level strategic group is responsible for directing the Patient Safety work stream on behalf of HEE NE.  Wider stakeholders and partners are involved in the collaborative and steering groups, such as representation from Patient Safety Collaborative, ASPiH, and link with the national work of HEE.  

The faculty will pull together experience and knowledge of human factors, its impact on clinical quality, the value of simulation, knowledge of regional services and networks, such as mortality and morbidity groups and their links and national initiatives in this area. It will deliver education based on the needs of our patients as well as curriculum requirements in order to improve local patient care.
