Tony Roberts

Patient Safety Collaborative Programme Lead

All things patient safety!

Tony joined the AHSN in June 2014 to help set up the Patient Safety Collaborative and has been the Patient Safety lead since that time. He is also a Deputy Director (Clinical Effectiveness) at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Deputy Director of the North East Quality Observatory Service (NEQOS).

During the pandemic Tony has lead on support to providers to established Covid Oximetry @home and Covid Virtual Wards.

Tony has been working on Quality Improvement since 1998 and is particularity interested in hospital mortality and the time-sensitive conditions, like heart attack, stroke, hip fracture, sepsis, community acquired pneumonia, acute kidney injury, venous thromboembolism and frailty that cause the highest volumes of deaths in hospitals. The requirements placed on the NHS from March 2017 to learn from deaths in care are especially important and Tony was closely involved in setting up the first Medical Examiner service in the North East and North Cumbria.

His background is in NHS measurement, Health Services Research, Epidemiology and Statistical Process Control.
