Patient safety is at the heart of everything we do
This page the website highlights current safety concerns, and brings together some of the key resources and information that the RCOG is engaged with.
The principles of ‘Always put the patient first’ and ‘Zero harm and patient safety’ are central to the RCOG Manifesto for Change, which stresses the need to embed a safety culture in women’s health services, so that high quality care can be provided for all.
Better collaboration between health professionals, and multi-disciplinary team working, are both essential to ensure that care is safe and outcomes are good.
