The 103-page document outlines proposals to improve patient and staff care at NHS hospitals across the UK.
Responses have been made across three reports about Freedom to Speak Up, the Public Administration Select Committee on clinical incidents and the Morecambe Bay investigation.
Freedom to Speak Up is used as an incentive to encourage staff to speak out about poor quality of care in the NHS.
In the second report about investigating clinical incidents, the government also said that it would be setting up an independent agency to investigate patient safety incidents.
In the third report about the Morecambe Bay investigation, the Government has pledged to improve midwifery supervision by modernising it.
Across the reports, the Government says they all highlight similar points and recommendations to improve care and support under the NHS:
- Openness, honesty and candour
- Listening to patients, family and staff
- Finding and facing the truth
- Learning from errors and failures in care
- People and professionalism
