The Patient Safety Partner – An exciting new opportunity at MKUH!

Date: 31/01/2022

The Patient Safety Partner (PSP) is a new and evolving role developed by NHS England to help improve patient safety across health care in the UK. Here at Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH), we are excited to welcome a team of PSPs to work alongside our staff, patients, and families to influence and improve safety within our hospital. PSPs can be patients, carers, family members or other lay people (including NHS staff from another organisation).

This is a great opportunity to share your interests, experiences, and skills to help develop the new PSP role and be a part of the team here at MKUH. Some examples of what you might like to be involved with include:

  • Talking with patients and staff about safety and what matters to them
  • Support the safety training of staff
  • Be part of project teams working to improve safe care and our systems
  • Join safety boards and team meetings
  • Help develop patient safety information resources
  • Support the safety team when reviewing incidents
  • Help us understand what we do well and how we can do this more of the time

We can offer you:

  • Fun and engaging opportunities
  • Flexible hours, days, times
  • Variety of roles
  • Inclusion in the staff benefits scheme
  • Induction programme
  • Ongoing training and support

MKUH strives to be diverse, inclusive and a place where we can all be ourselves. We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME), LGBT+, Disabled and Veterans who are under-represented across the Trust.
