Since our Centre was established we’ve been working towards one clear vision: the delivery of safer healthcare.

In 2023, our five-year funding was renewed for the fourth time by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and we became one of six NIHR Patient Safety Research Collaborations in England. This marked the beginning of a refreshed research journey for us, offering the opportunity to build on our previous expertise in areas such as involving patients in their care and optimising how data is used.

Our work focuses around four major areas of research, or themes, spanning the breadth of patient care – from improving diagnostics to making medication safer. These address safety at both the patient level, for example finding ways to prevent health deterioration, and the systems level to make advances across the care continuum.
