Greater Manchester and Eastern Cheshire Patient Safety Collaborative share their highlights and learning during peer review

Greater Manchester and Eastern Cheshire Patient Safety Collaborative (GMECPSC) shared their recent highlights and learning with the AHSN Network during a peer review.

The GMECPSC team met with Jonathon Gray (CEO, South West Academic Health Science Network) and Cheryl Crocker (Regional Lead, Patient Safety Programme, East Midlands Academic Health Science Network) as part of an opportunity for reflection on the work of the Patient Safety Collaboratives.

The team shared their mission statement and how it has informed their work over the past few months before explaining their achievements in detail, including the success of the two learning system launch events with the Maternity and Neonatal and Deteriorating Patient workstreams.

Challenges that the team have faced and the opportunities available in the future were also discussed as part of the shared learning experience.

Jay Hamilton, Associate Director of Health and Implementation and GMEC Patient Safety Collaborative Lead, said: “The peer review has allowed us to think about what we have learned as a team, the work that we have done, the progress we have made and the journey we are on.

“We have also learned even more about ourselves, our resilience and our strengths, and it gave us pause for thought about our direction of travel.

“As a result of the review, we feel more positive about some of the things we are doing and less uncertain about what we have done, what we can do and what we are about to do.

“We all agreed that it was hugely beneficial and we can’t wait to hear back from the team that came to review us about what they have learned from other teams and what we can potentially adopt into our own thinking or spread across our own patch.”
