1000 Lives Campaign, one year on

So, we’re a year on from the start of the 1000 Lives Campaign and it does seem that progress has been made in the first twelve months, with an estimated 410 lives being saved in that time.

A year ago, we welcomed the initiative and its drive to create safer environments and consistently high standards of care for our patients.

Now, as the Campaign enters its second year, the key is to maintain the momentum and spread the good practice that has been achieved across all organisations in Wales.

Our members will continue to contribute to the Campaign’s aims and highlight areas that require greater focus to make NHS Wales safer for all patients.

We will keep on highlighting areas of concern which doctors believe are having adverse consequences for patient care and clinical outcomes. And this Campaign provides the right background context in which to do so.
