Patient Safety

North Bristol NHS Trust is delighted to introduce the Patient Safety Incident Response Plan (PSIRP). This plan sets out how we will respond, learn and improve from patient safety incidents and meet the requirements of the national Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF).  

This updated plan builds on the Trust's work to implement PSIRF as an early adopter in the NHS. It refreshes our understanding of the safety issues affecting our patients and is founded upon the key aim of promoting a just culture, providing staff with a psychologically safe space to discuss and learn from events and proactively reduce the risk of harm.

During the course of delivering this plan, the Trust will monitor the impact and effectiveness of safe care, along with oversight of the wider PSIRF and Patient Safety Strategy
