"We must recognise that patients are our customers and that as such they have a right to a safe passage through our care system. Each and every one of us needs to make it our business to ensure the safety of those in our care. We need to go the extra mile to ensure quality, and whatever the problems faced along the way, we deliver the best, safest service we can." - Martyn Butcher looks at accountability, responsibility and patient care.
