In a nutshell: Bradford Teaching Hospitals has been named as one of 10 centres which will pilot projects aimed at putting patients at the heart of patient safety. The Bradford PRASE (Patient Reporting and Action for a Safe Environment) scheme intends to advance the wellbeing of patients by using hospital volunteers to record real-time patient feedback about how safe their care is. In this project, the hospital team will harness volunteers to promote the wider implementation of PRASE which will be rolled out across the Bradford Royal Infirmary, St Luke’s Hospital and the district’s community hospitals. It will also be trialled at Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Staff from the Bradford Institute for Health Research which is based at Bradford Royal Infirmary will evaluate the project. Dr Robin Jeffrey, the project leader, discusses the project.
