The five pledges are:
1. Put Safety First
A commitment to reduce avoidable harm in the NHS by half and make public the goals and plans developed locally.
2. Continually Learn
Make our practice more resilient to risks by acting on the feedback from patients and by constantly measuring and monitoring how safe services are.
Be transparent with people about their progress to tackle patient safety issues and support staff to be candid with patients and their families if something goes wrong.
Take a leading role in supporting local collaborative learning so that improvements are made across all of the local services that patients use.
Help people understand why things go wrong and how to put them right. Give staff the time and support to improve and celebrate the progress.
Irnham Lodge Surgery is committed to improving the quality of our services and putting patient safety at the heart of our operations.
As well as our complaints procedure, we operate a significant events policy in which any incident or near miss is investigated and the learning shared with our whole team to encourage constant improvement.
All events are investigated regardless of whether the outcome was positive or negative, and the learning points shared will often include examples of good practice as well as areas for improvement.
We are committed to being open and transparent and full details of our campaign can be found here.
