RPS welcomes NHS patient safety strategy

In Latest

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has welcomed the publication of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy, which sets out what the NHS in England will do to achieve its vision to improve patient safety, and says that pharmacists will play a central role.

The report details how more can be done to share safety insight with the potential to save almost 1,000 extra lives and £100m in care costs each year from 2023/24.

Welcoming the report, RPS England chair Claire Anderson said: “As experts in medicines, pharmacists will be at the heart of this work, including supporting shared decision-making with patients, medicines reviews, and reducing problematic polypharmacy”.
