NHS staff are important stakeholders in the work we undertake, from advising us about our research to helping us test new ideas and innovations to address current problems.

We are working with different staff groups to develop their ideas to improve the quality and safety of care and we plan to involve staff to understand more about the systems and processes that they feel optimise the safety of care.

As a member of the NHS staff workforce, you can get involved in the YH PSTRC as a partner and shape the centre’s priorities. Projects will address your priorities for improving care and your work environment.

To find out more about getting involved please contact us.

Our Safety Innovation Challenge Fund and Event

Each year our Safety Innovation Challenge Fund offers up to £10,000 or innovative new research projects. Our Safety Innovation Challenge Event gives researchers and healthcare staff the opportunity to develop research ideas and meet others interested in patient safety research.

Take our survey: In the name of safety

Researchers in the YH PSTRC are seeking to understand what safety rules, processes and practices frontline healthcare staff perceive as low-value. These may be practices that aimed to make care safer but may not be evidence based and may be unnecessary.

If you work in frontline patient care and would like to contribute to this new patient safety initiative, click here to tell us your example(s) of low-value safety rules, practices or processes for consideration.
