Each year, the Patient Safety Group sets out core priority areas to work on.

In 2022 we will; continue to provide a forum based on the principles of sharing and learning, openness and transparency and will work to embed these principles at all levels; work with policy makers to inform national safety mechanisms; engage with key stakeholders and respond proactively and reactively to issues which impact patient safety. 

We will focus on medication errors, medication safety in pregnancy, resilience & wellbeing, health inequalities and controlled drugs and opioid stewardship.

The groups priorities from previous years can be viewed below.
