The first thing to announce is that we are very happy to confirm that Helen Hughes has now joined Patient Safety Learning as our Chief Executive.
In our last blog we shared some reflections about the recent case of Dr Gawa-Barba and the implications the case has for the promotion of a learning culture in healthcare.
When an adverse event occurs in healthcare, the consequences can be catastrophic for patients and their families. In the aftermath of such events there are multiple needs, expectations and demands.
We are pleased to announce that Helen Hughes will be joining Patient Safety Learning as the latest member of our team.
Thank you for taking the time to sign up to the Patient Safety Learning newsletter and welcome to our very first edition!
The launch event was the result of many conversations between James, me and members of our steering group. For me personally, the seeds of Patient Safety Learning were sown many years ago.
It’s already been over two weeks since our new organisation, Patient Safety Learning launched at the Kings Fund in London. Thanks to everyone that came along to show their support and find out more.
In recent months I've been working with colleagues and friends to set up a new organisation called patient Safety Learning.
