Patient safety probe

21st July 2008

Members of Parliament are due to conduct an inquiry investigating patient safety in late 2008.

MP Kevin Barron, the committee's chairman, announced on 17 July that the inquiry would start in the autumn. "Among the issues it will examine are the role of human error and poor clinical judgement, the impact of public perceptions of risk on NHS policy, and the effectiveness of boards in establishing a safety culture".
