The Foundations for a Patient-Centred NHS Learning Culture? (Department of Health)

Summary

This “Learning Not Blaming” report presents the government’s response to (i) the Francis Freedom to Speak Up review, (ii) the Morecambe Bay Investigation, and (iii) the Public Administration Select Committee’s report on clinical incidents.

The common theme for addressing the challenges posed by the above reports (and by Robert Francis QC’s earlier report into poor standards of care at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust) is to support NHS staff in raising concerns about poor care and lapses in patient safety.

The mission is to create a patient-centred (rather than a supplier-driven) NHS, which is capable of becoming the world’s largest and safest and largest “learning organisation”, with a built-in open culture which encourages continuous quality improvement.
