    An independent Commissioner to advocate for the welfare and safety of patients will be appointed following the passing of a new Bill.

    The Scottish Government's Patient Safety Commissioner Bill has been passed unanimously by Parliament and will help to amplify the voice of patients and drive safety improvements across healthcare. The Bill gives the Commissioner complete freedom to consider or investigate any issue they believe to have a significant bearing on patient safety in healthcare, and they will be able to hear from patients and their families as well as gather information from healthcare providers, to inform their work.
