HSC Safety Forum

The HSC Safety Forum was created in 2007 to support HSC organisations as they strive to provide safe, high quality care. The HSC Safety Forum:

  • works collaboratively with stakeholders to assist the drive for improvement in safety and quality in Health and Social Care;
  • helps service providers build and develop their quality improvement capability in line with internationally recognised theory and practice;
  • facilitates engagement between patients, clients, commissioners and service providers in order to promote safety and quality.

The HSC Safety Forum uses a variety of facilitative approaches, which include:

  • enhancement of knowledge on safety, quality and improvement science within the HSC system;
  • providing exposure to nationally and internationally recognised experts in the field;
  • acting as a conduit for the sharing of best practice;
  • hosting collaborative working;
  • directly supporting improvement initiatives within HSC organisations.
