NIHR Newcastle Patient Safety Research Collaborative

NIHR PSRCs are partnerships between the NHS/universities in England to support patient safety research. The Collaborations aim to develop, validate and test innovations, approaches and interventions that have the potential to lead to improvements in patient safety and the safety of health and care services. A key emphasis underpinning all research themes is the reduction in inequalities in the safety of healthcare.

Experts from Newcastle University, working with Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals (NUTH) and partner organisations will deliver visible research resulting in real-world, transformative change for patient safety and health outcomes for those with multiple long-term conditions (MLTCs). Strategic patient safety challenges will be addressed around:

  • Patient safety behaviours
  • Effective patient safety practices
  • Clinical risk scores (validation, implementation and outcomes).
