Our roots

Our founders have been working with healthcare safety for almost two decades. We have a deep understanding of primary care across many countries, and have extensive expertise in regulatory frameworks like CQC.

Our roots are in Patient Safety. Having instigated and supported the 1st international Patient safety study in 2001, with the Robert Graham Center in Washington DC and the American Association of Family Doctors, the findings and taxonomy of errors from this study formed the foundation of the National Patient Safety Association (NPSA ). We produced the first ever electronic Significant Event Audit system, in conjunction with Prof. Mike Pringle (President of RCGP), based on his ground breaking blueprint for SEA.

Our advisors like Dr James Kingsland OBE and Professor David Colin-Thomé OBE are acomplished healthcare professional of stature and standing.
