Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT)

Engaging and training frontline staff

GIRFT is a national programme designed to improve the treatment and care of patients.

GIRFT is part of an aligned set of programmes within NHS England. The programme has the support of the Royal Colleges and professional associations.

The programme examines how things are currently being done and how they could be improved through in-depth review of services, benchmarking, and presenting a data-driven evidence base to support change.

    Supporting hospitals to learn from mistakes

    Learning from mistakes

    Our goal

    People with diabetes experience fewer harms in hospital because when errors occur, they are reported and action taken so they don't happen again. The diabetes inpatient team has processes in place to make sure mistakes are owned, understood and managed by the clinical teams involved.
