An Introduction to Clinical Governance and Patient Safety

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the importance of patient and public involvement (PPI). PPI increases the accountability of the NHS to the taxpayer. PPI can support service improvement and the concept of co-design which draws from patient and staff experience is being adopted in health care settings. Section 242 of the NHS Act 2006 requires health services to make arrangements to involve those who use services and the Darzi Review (2008) reinforces this as part of the new national quality framework.
