RCGP Curriculum - 3.2 Patient Safety

This section of our curriculum guide refers to statement 3.2, Patient Safety, produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

GPs are well-placed to tackle patient safety issues in primary care, both as individuals and team leaders. The challenge is to systematically identify and learn from significant events, through a culture of openness, reporting, and safety consciousness.


Patient safety should be an integral part of your approach to general practice, enabling you to react appropriately to changing circumstances and new challenges as they arise.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.

In this section you will find articles on:

These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.
