Consultation on the role of Patient Safety Commissioner for Scotland

Section: Membership Policy into Practice the ALLIANCE Location: Online Date of event: 06/05/2021 at 11.30-12.45

Join us for a discussion session to inform the ALLIANCE's response to Scottish Government consultation.

The Scottish Government’s Programme for Government 2020-21 commits the Government to establishing a Patient Safety Commissioner for Scotland. The decision to establish a Patient Safety Commissioner role for Scotland came about as a result of the Cumberlege Review(this link will take you away from our website) published in July 2020.

The Scottish Government has therefore opened a consultation to collect views on what that role of Patient Safety Commissioner should look like.

The ALLIANCE is hosting a session to inform our response and give members the opportunity to hear about and influence the consultation.

The session will consist of a facilitated discussion with the team to gain your feedback on a number of key areas, including:

  • Scope of the Patient Safety Commissioner role
  • Functions and Powers of the Patient Safety Commissioner
  • Independence and Accountability of the Patient Safety Commissioner
