World Patient Safety Day 2020

17 September 2020 marks the WHO World Patient Safety Day. We are calling all staff across the CCG to show their support by raising awareness and celebrating the efforts of healthcare staff and organisations to keep patients safe.

The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Health worker safety: a priority for patient safety’. The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the huge challenges and risks health workers are facing globally, including healthcare-associated infections, violence, stigma, psychological and emotional disturbances, illness and even death. Furthermore, working in stressful environments makes health workers more prone to errors which can lead to patient harm.
