- The framework was developed on behalf of the Health Foundation by Professor Charles Vincent, Ms Susan Burnett and Dr Jane Carthey.
- The research team drew on learning from the literature as well as a survey of current practice as they developed the framework in their spotlight report, The measurement and monitoring of safety
- This guide introduces the framework and explains how it can help those working in the NHS answer the question ‘How safe is our care?’ and bring about constructive change.
