HSJ Patient Safety Awards 2018

The national Patient Safety Collaborative programme, which is delivered by KSS AHSN in the Kent, Surrey and Sussex region, is sponsoring a prestigious award – HSJ Patient Safety Team of the Year 2018.

The deadline for entries to the HSJ Patient Safety Awards is 26 January and teams from Kent, Surrey and Sussex are urged to enter, to share the learning about initiatives which have led to an improvement in the quality and safety of care.

There are 19 categories; for more information and tips on what makes a successful entry, download the Categories and Criteria brochure.

Peter Carpenter, Programme Director at KSS AHSN, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to recognise great work and share learning which can benefit colleagues throughout the country. Judges are looking for evidence of impact and also for projects which are scaleable and which have been, or have potential for, further spread.”

Kent Surrey Sussex Patient Safety Collaborative is part of a national programme delivered by the AHSN Network in partnership with NHS Improvement.

Last year, there were four HSJ Patient Safety Awards for projects involving Patient Safety Collaborative and AHSN teams – read about them here.
