How does the Programme work?

The Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP) is led and co-ordinated nationally, supporting implementation within NHS boards through local teams within hospitals, GP practices, mental health inpatients units and community pharmacies.

The programme is delivered through a collaborative approach based on the Breakthrough Series Collaborative Model, using national learning sessions to bring NHS boards together to share and learn from each other interspersed with action periods where local teams test and implement changes using improvement methodology - The Model for Improvement (PDF, 2MB) - to bring about improvements in care provision.

The programme is supported by a range of stakeholders including NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and the NHSScotland Quality Improvement Hub (QI Hub).
