The Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group (SALG) highlights potential or existing patient safety issues to those practising anaesthesia.
Part of the group's remit is to encourage the reporting of safety incidents for learning purposes.
SALG publishes patient safety updates every quarter based on data from an earlier three month period. View the latest updates.
SALG is made up of members from the Association, the Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA), and the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA). A wider group of advisory members representing a number of specialist societies are sometimes called upon to provide an expert opinion on specific issues.
View the current members of SALG.
The Safety Network is a database of contacts who have volunteered to act as a point of contact between their colleagues and SALG.
The Network is hosted by the RCoA and more than 800 individuals are relied upon to disseminate information and to provide feedback. You can join the Safety Network by emailing the RCoA Patient Safety Administrator.
Reporting issues is vital for maintaining and improving safety procedures
