Patient Safety in Primary Care

All patients are entitled to access safe and effective health care. Avoiding errors, or identifying and correcting them, is a high priority. This PSP aimed to influence the future patient safety research agenda by identifying the Top 10 areas of uncertainty, as agreed by patients, carers and healthcare professionals.

It was run by the National Institute for Health and Care Research Greater Manchester Primary Care Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (NIHR Greater Manchester PSTRC).   

237 people responded to the initial survey, suggesting a total of 443 questions.  457 people responded to the interim survey where the unanswered questions were ranked in order.

The Patient Safety in Primary Care Top 10 was published in March 2017.
