Spire Roding Hospital joins the ‘Sign up to Safety’

19 June 2017


In May 2017 Spire Roding Hospital joined the ‘Sign up to Safety’ national patient safety campaign. By doing this, the hospital commits to produce a safety improvement plan for Spire Roding Hospital's team, which will show how the hospital intends to save lives and reduce harm to patients over the next 3 years.

'Sign up to Safety' is a national patient safety campaign announced by the Secretary of State for Health. It launched on 24 June 2014 with the mission to strengthen patient safety in the NHS and make it the safest healthcare system in the world.

The campaign now aims to help member organisations listen to patients, carers and staff, learn from what they say when things go wrong and take action to improve patient’s safety, helping to ensure patients get harm free care every time, everywhere.

Here are the pledges Spire Roding Hospital has signed up to for safety of our patients:

  1. Putting safety first
    Committing to reduce avoidable harm in the SRH by half through taking a systematic approach to safety and making public our locally developed goals, plans and progress. Instilling a Human Factor approach to training and a preoccupation with failure so that systems are designed to prevent error and avoidable harm.
  2. Continually learn
    Reviewing our incident reporting and investigation processes to make sure that we are truly learning from them and using these lessons to make SRH more resilient to risks. Listen, learn and act on the feedback from patients and staff and by constantly measuring and monitoring how safe our services are.
  3. Be honest
    Being open and transparent with people about our progress to tackle patient safety issues and supporting staff to be candid with patients and their families if something goes wrong.
  4. Collaborate
    Stepping up and actively collaborating with other organisations and teams; sharing our work, our ideas and our learning to create a truly national approach to safety. Working together with others, joining forces and creating partnerships that ensure a sustained approach to sharing and learning across the system.
  5. Be supportive
    Being kind to our staff, helping them bring joy and pride to their work. Being thoughtful when things go wrong; helping staff cope and creating a positive just culture that asks why things go wrong in order to put them right. Giving staff the time, resources and support to work safely and to work on improvements. Thanking our staff, rewarding and recognising their efforts through the inspire reward system and celebrating our progress towards safer care.
