Question for Department of Health

UIN HL2937, tabled on 18 November 2014

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether plans are in place to roll out the position of Ambassador for Cultural Change across the National Health Service in England.

Answered on

26 November 2014

We welcome local innovations such as the role of the Ambassador for Cultural Change at the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership NHS Trust, but we have not made a formal assessment.

We do not have plans to roll out this position nationally. Local National Health Service organisations are responding to the challenges of the Francis Inquiry in a number of different ways, and we will continue to support them through mechanisms such as the patient safety collaboratives, and the work of organisations such as Health Education England and NHS England.
