Community Update on Safety and Quality in Health Care

The Community Update is designed to provide the community and consumers with information on the progress of our Health Service across three key areas:

  • Falls
  • Infections and hand hygiene 
  • Medication safety

We believe that engaging the community and partnering with patients, family and carers as team members improves quality in health care. An important driver of quality is safety: avoiding or reducing potential harm in health care. In this Community Update we provide you with information and practical ways you can help improve your care.

If you have questions or comments on this information, please contact our Clinical Governance team at
