Patient safety

Patient safety is of utmost importance to the Trust.

Our clinical governance systems and processes help us achieve our organisational objectives of delivering both safety and quality within all Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust services. They also help us to promote best practice and to meet national and locally agreed standards.

The Trust also adheres to strict standards monitored by the Care Quality Commission. We seek to deliver the best quality care as recommenced through guidance produced by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence). Patient safety is assessed, controlled and monitored through risk management arrangements.
