unstar this property answer text <p>Healthcare providers are expected to implement all the actions contained in a patient safety alert that are relevant to them and ensure that all relevant parts of their organisation and staff are aware of the information and/or the required changes. Providers should be scrutinising the implementation of their alerts and satisfying themselves that the alerts are complete by the designated deadline.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>NHS England publishes monthly data about any trusts who have failed to declare compliance with stage one, two, or three of the National Patient Safety Alerting System’s (NaPSAS) alerts by their set due date. Provider compliance should also be an integral part of the commissioners’ responsibilities for improving quality.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As part of its inspections, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) looks at how providers respond to patient safety alerts as evidence of how effectively they manage and address safety concerns, and how they use this as learning to improve their safety systems and processes. CQC is continuing to develop and embed its approach to the use of data and intelligence across all the sectors it regulates as an integral part of its new approach to inspections, and has given greater prominence to safety alerts in its revised surveillance model. CQC’s Intelligent Monitoring system for the Acute Sector includes a composite indicator around completion of safety alerts and CQC is currently considering whether this can be implemented for the other sectors it regulates. This contributes to providers’ overall risk scores, which inform both the scheduling and prioritisation of inspections and the identification of focus areas for inspections.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Monitor is responsible for ensuring NHS foundation trusts are well-led so that they can provide quality care on a sustainable basis and would expect to be alerted by their providers of anything that might have a bearing on compliance with their licence including where there are significant issues regarding compliance with patient safety alerts. The NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA), as part of its oversight and escalation process, uses quality surveillance monitoring which it reviews on a monthly basis and which it uses to hold trusts to account for the timely compliance with alerts. This is undertaken via the TDA’s regular integrated delivery meetings with the trusts.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government has agreed to consider with relevant organisations the options for transferring NHS England’s responsibilities for safety to a single national body and this will include responsibility for patent safety alerts. No decision has yet been taken about the specific functions to be transferred and until such time, NHS England will continue to be responsible for these functions.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Sign up to Safety campaign was launched on 24 June 2014. Each organisation that has joined the campaign has committed to improving patient safety through the implementation of a Safety Improvement Plan. The Safety Improvement Plan builds on the pledges the organisation set out when joining. The pledges are expanded in more detail in the plan, which sets out what the organisation wants to achieve and by when. Each organisation is expected to demonstrate how they will measure the local impact of their aims over the next three years via a measurement section within their plans. They will then implement their aims over the next three years.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Sign up to Safety campaign is being promoted by means of:</p><p> </p><p>- a national campaign website;</p><p> </p><p>- regional and national presentations at events across the country delivered by the Campaign Director, the Secretary of State and others;</p><p> </p><p>- Twitter with over 1,500 followers;</p><p> </p><p>- a blog by the Campaign Director;</p><p> </p><p>- an online seminar programme (webinars);</p><p> </p><p>- through partner organisations including NHS England, Care Quality Commission, Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, NHS Litigation Authority, Health Education England, and NHS Improving Quality;</p><p> </p><p>- mini poster campaigns, such as the Safe Care Costs Less, and individual events, such as the launch of the Patient Briefing Video; and</p><p> </p><p>- through participant websites and local events.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As at the end of October 2014, a total number of 136 organisations have agreed to participate in the Sign up to Safety campaign. Each participant organisation is expected to set out how they will contribute to the campaign’s three year objective via their Safety Improvement Plan – they are expected to quantify the expected impact of their actions on a reduction of avoidable harm and saving lives. The measurement and evaluation of the impact at a regional and national level will be led by NHS England working with NHS Improving Quality as part of the integrated measurement strategy for both the campaign and the Patient Safety Collaborative programme. This will include the National Reporting and Learning System, harms via the Safety Thermometer and mortality rates, case studies of individual organisations and patient record reviews.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Sign up to Safety campaign was launched on 24 June 2014. Each organisation that has joined the campaign has committed to improving patient safety through the implementation of a Safety Improvement Plan. The Safety Improvement Plan builds on the pledges the organisation set out when joining. The pledges are expanded in more detail in the plan, which sets out what the organisation wants to achieve and by when. Each organisation is expected to demonstrate how they will measure the local impact of their aims over the next three years via a measurement section within their plans. They will then implement their aims over the next three years.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Sign up to Safety campaign is being promoted by means of:</p><p> </p><p>- a national campaign website;</p><p> </p><p>- regional and national presentations at events across the country delivered by the Campaign Director, the Secretary of State and others;</p><p> </p><p>- Twitter with over 1,500 followers;</p><p> </p><p>- a blog by the Campaign Director;</p><p> </p><p>- an online seminar programme (webinars);</p><p> </p><p>- through partner organisations including NHS England, Care Quality Commission, Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, NHS Litigation Authority, Health Education England, and NHS Improving Quality;</p><p> </p><p>- mini poster campaigns, such as the Safe Care Costs Less, and individual events, such as the launch of the Patient Briefing Video; and</p><p> </p><p>- through participant websites and local events.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As at the end of October 2014, a total number of 136 organisations have agreed to participate in the Sign up to Safety campaign. Each participant organisation is expected to set out how they will contribute to the campaign’s three year objective via their Safety Improvement Plan – they are expected to quantify the expected impact of their actions on a reduction of avoidable harm and saving lives. The measurement and evaluation of the impact at a regional and national level will be led by NHS England working with NHS Improving Quality as part of the integrated measurement strategy for both the campaign and the Patient Safety Collaborative programme. This will include the National Reporting and Learning System, harms via the Safety Thermometer and mortality rates, case studies of individual organisations and patient record reviews.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
