Health Education England has published the first NHS-wide Patient Safety Syllabus which applies to all NHS employees and will result in all NHS employees receiving enhanced patient safety training.

Written by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and commissioned by HEE the new National Patient Safety Syllabus outlines a new approach to patient safety emphasising a proactive approach to identifying risks to safe care while also including systems thinking and human factors.

Level one and two learning materials will be available on the E Learning for Health platform for staff to access and complete from August and September 2021.
