The shortlist for the Patient Safety Awards has been announced. The independent judges have now selected the finalists, ready for the next stage of judging after what was an extremely tough and grueling process given the high quality of this year's entrants. Those who have made the shortlist should be proud of being selected as well as having the chance to secure the winner's accolade on the awards night itself.
"Following the publication of the Francis report on the care failings at Mid Staffs Foundation Trust, the focus on patient safety in the NHS is higher than it has ever been. The 82 shortlisted entries in this year's Patient Safety Awards represent a 40% increase on last year and in demonstrating the NHS can deliver world class patient safety provide an inspiration to those reacting to the legacy of Mid Staffs."
