As a GP, working on patient safety at NHS Digital meant I needed to shift my mindset. I had to move from the relatively straightforward – though not always easy – task of thinking about the safety of the person in front of me in the consulting room, to thinking about all those patients, in front of GPs or other health and care providers, up and down the country, whose clinical care is facilitated by technology and ‘human systems’ (such as behaviour and culture) – and how these interact.
