Sign up to Safety is made up of over 500 locally owned and self-directed campaigns. Even though day to day work may look different in different parts of the country, all our members share a common cause of making care safer.
Letting people know about your organisation’s commitment to creating a strong safety culture and getting people behind your work is really important. We have produced these resources to help you do that.
To keep people interested, involved and motivated to help you, from time to time you may want to provide a focal point to bring people together and keep patient safety front of mind (such as marking the anniversary of when you became a member or taking part in National Kitchen Table Week), so we have some resources for that also. These have been used by us at different points since 2014, and used by member organisations in different ways. There is no right way, rather these are given to you as inspiration, for you to build yours and others’ knowledge and for you to use as you wish (in the spirit of the campaign!).
You are welcome to customise any downloadable resources in any way you like to suit your needs, and to quote from our blogs (please attribute).
