Patient safety is our number one priority. If you have any questions or concerns please speak to a member of staff.
More than a million people are treated successfully in the NHS every day. Occasionally some patients who are admitted to hospital experience adverse events or harm. These are unexpected and unintended events related to medical care (e.g. an infection caught in hospital, the wrong dose of medication, or a deep vein thrombosis after an operation).
Sign up to Safety
We are one of the first hospitals in England to support a new campaign called Sign up to Safety which aims to raise the bar even higher when it comes to improving patient safety across the NHS through greater openness and transparency.
