The safety thermometer is a measurement tool for improvement in health care, which focuses on the most common harms to patients.
The NHS Safety Thermometer is now managed by NHS South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit (SCW), on behalf of NHS Improvement. This includes the collection and publication of the NHS Safety Thermometer data.
