What progress has the NHS made in improving patient safety since Don Berwick’s 2013 review, A promise to learn – a commitment to act.

We, in partnership with Monitor and the Trust Development Authority, undertook a survey to assess the progress made against the recommendations in the Berwick review. We asked every NHS provider in England about the impact that the Berwick review had in their trust, and what progress has been made in patient safety since the review was published.

Ninety-nine NHS providers including acute, community, mental health and ambulance trusts (40% of all trusts) took part in the survey. Our infographic summarises the key findings.

A PDF of the infographic is available for download. If you would like an image file of this infographic, please email us at website@health.org.uk or tweet us @HealthFdn.
