SPSP Mental Health

The Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP) is a national quality improvement programme that aims to improve the safety and reliability of care and reduce harm. 

Since the launch of SPSP mental health in 2012, the programme has worked to ensure people are and feel safe in adult mental health inpatient settings.

Underpinned by the robust application of quality improvement methodology SPSP mental health has brought about significant change in outcomes for people across Scotland.
