Southern Trust staff urged to ‘Think Safety’

21 September 2022

The Southern Trust has launched its first SAFEtember programme: Safe Today, Safe Tomorrow.

Core to its ability to provide a safe and quality service is a workforce that is equipped with the knowledge and skills to deliver safe effective services based on an ethos of quality improvement.

Jacqueline Morton, Head of Quality, Southern Trust, said: “Staff and patient safety is everyone’s responsibility. Throughout the month of September, we have been encouraging everyone across the organisation to Think Safety, have a safety conversation with colleagues and commit to a team Safety Pledge.”

The Trust’s SAFEtember programme has focused on four safety areas:

  • Showcasing safety
  • Trust safety priorities
  • Knowledge and skills for embedding safety
  • Staff safety and safety culture
