New Safety Checklist

New Safety Checklist


Our Gynaecology Outpatient Department and Maternity Services have introduced a new safety checklist for interventional procedures. The checklist follows the guidance laid down by NHS England’s National Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures (2015), which sets out the key steps necessary to deliver safe care for patients undergoing invasive procedures in the gynaecology outpatient and maternity settings.

This approach to patient safety harmonises practice across the department, ensuring that there is a consistent approach to the care of patients undergoing invasive procedures. The departments now use one safety checklist for all procedures, reducing the need for multiple pieces of paper and enhancing patient safety.
