• Devon Doctors wins award for commitment to patient safety

    DEVON Doctors has won a coveted award for its commitment to patient safety.

    The organisation's Putting Patients First initiative earned it a gong in the Education and Training category at the prestigious Patient Safety Awards.

    Chief executive Chris Wright collected the award during a glittering ceremony at the Grosvernor House Hotel, in London’s Park Lane, on Tuesday evening.

    Devon Doctors, which is responsible for the provision of urgent out-of-hours GP care across the county, was up against leading providers of private healthcare, foundation trusts and the producers of revolutionary new healthcare products in the keenly contested category.

    Putting Patients First is founded on an innovative approach to minimising harm and, at the same time, improving the patient experience and has been rolled out to Devon Doctors staff across the county.

    “It’s fantastic to see the Putting Patients First training package receive national recognition,” said Chris.

    “Such has been the response to Putting Patients First, we have shared it with our colleagues across the out-of-hours sector so its benefits are now going nationwide.”

    The judges said they had been really impressed by Devon Doctors determination to successfully drive change.

    The editor of Health Service Journal, Alastair McLellan, said: “The companies who have won Patient Safety Awards are the vanguard of a renewed focus on patient safety which is saving lives and improving outcomes across the service.”
