The NIHR GM PSTRC is a partnership between The University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

Disclaimer: This learning programme is intended to aid the assessment of different aspects of patient safety with a view to making improvements. Using it will not, on its own, ensure you are compliant with health and safety legislation. Organisations should evaluate their own level of compliance with the law and seek competent advice if appropriate.

It is important to draw on insights into the potential risk in pharmacy practice in order to make improvements to patient safety. There are three tools that can support pharmacy professionals to improve safety and enact logical and sustainable change.
