In a nutshell: A new programme to ensure that patient safety is at the heart of how the health and healthcare workforce are trained has been announced by Health Education England (HEE). Patient safety should be the first and most important lesson healthcare workers learn as they train to work in the NHS. HEE has asked recent past President of the Royal College of Surgeons Professor Norman Williams to chair the new initiative with Sir Keith Pearson, Chair of HEE acting as Vice Chair. The HEE Safety Board will start its work later this year and will look to report in the autumn of 2015.
