Help influence patient safety improvements through NHSE consultation

Date published:

NHS England has launched a consultation seeking views on whether the existing Never events framework remains an effective mechanism to support patient safety improvement.

Never Events are defined as patient safety events that are ‘wholly preventable’ because of the existence of strong systemic protective barriers at a national level. However, reports from the CQC and HSIB highlighted for several types of Never Events the barriers are not strong enough and called for the framework to be reviewed.

Find out more on the NHSE consultation webpage and share your views via the online survey. Closing date is 5 May 2024.
