The Learn Not Blame campaign is unique in its desire to bring together patients, families, doctors and all healthcare staff in calling for a revolution in how the NHS talks about and acts on harm. Cicely Cunningham shares why we need a just culture of learning, not of blame and persecution.
How patient-centred are we these days? Are health and social care becoming more attuned to the needs of service users, carers and communities? These are vital questions as we approach next year’s general election. At our annual conference on 26 March, National Voices members will consider what progress has been made, what still needs to be done and what politicians ought to do, and not do.
