The Patient Safety Academy (PSA) at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences has been named as a finalist in the Best Emerging Solution for Patient Safety category for this year's Health Service Journal (HSJ) Patient Safety Awards.

The HSJ Patient Safety Awards recognise, reward and thank the hard-working teams and individuals who are improving healthcare outcomes for patients across the NHS.

Funded by Health Education England Thames Valley (HEETV), the Patient Safety Academy was formed from collaboration between two research groups in the University of Oxford, with expertise in patient safety, human factors/ergonomics and improvement science; the Quality, Reliability, Safety and Teamwork Unit (QRSTU) and Oxford Simulation Teaching and Research (OxSTaR). Together, the team are working to prioritise training and support for NHS staff in the Thames Valley. 

The next round of judging begins on Thursday 9 May, where the team will present the entry to a panel of judges. The winners will then be announced at the HSJ Patient Safety Awards in Manchester on Tuesday 2 July.
