Leading Improvement in Patient Safety (LIPS) for acute care
The Leading Improvement in Patient Safety (LIPS) programme is about building the capacity and capability within hospital teams to improve patient safety.
The programme aims to help NHS trusts develop organisational plans for patient safety improvements and to build teams responsible for driving improvement across their organisation.
The Safer Care team at the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement is currently working with acute trusts to embed patient safety in all local service improvement initiatives. Follow the links below to find out more about the LIPS acute care programme.
