The community pharmacy Patient Safety Group, made up of 19 passionate Medication Safety Officers, provides a forum for community pharmacy organisations, competitors in a commercial sense, to openly share and learn from each other when things have gone wrong, as well as from other sectors and industries.

The Group are a self-funded and self-created team with a difference.  They consider how learning from patient safety incidents can be applied across the pharmacy network and wider NHS, and then create the opportunities and resources to do just that.
