'Report On The Safety Of Services Provided By Health And Social Care Trusts (NIA 102/11-15)' examines the effectiveness of safety policies and procedures on services provided by health and social care trusts.
Health and social care services affect every member of society at some stage in their lives. Each year, there are in excess of 15 million key interactions between health and social care staff and healthcare patients and social care clients.
The challenge for the health and social care services is to ensure their patient safety systems minimise the risk of harm and take steps to maximise the competence, knowledge and skills of health and social care professionals.
The Committee's overall conclusion is that despite the introduction of a number of safety policies and initiatives, there is no reliable evidence to show that people receiving health and social care are any safer today than they were a decade ago. The Department still lacks a reliable means of tracking the progress of the health and social care services in improving the safety of those receiving care, or in holding service providers accountable for minimising preventable harm.
