Our research

Our themes of work, developed with patients, families and health professionals, reflect both our existing research strengths and the aim of building safety more comprehensively into the system.

About us

Our PSRC aims to develop, validate and test innovations, approaches and interventions that have the potential to lead to improvements in patient safety and the safety of health and care services.
