Safer Care Victoria is the state’s healthcare quality and safety improvement specialist.

We share better, safer healthcare

  • We work with national and international experts and partner with Victoria’s brightest to run improvement projects, and develop guidance and resources that help make healthcare safer.
  • We collect data and information on healthcare safety, reviewing systemic issues and helping services to prevent future harm.
  • We support independent review boards and councils, which advise all levels of government on healthcare safety, improvement and innovation.

Why we are here

Back in 2016, it was recognised that Victoria needed a new approach to improve the quality and safety of healthcare.

That’s why we were established in 2017. And why we take a determinedly fresh and independent-minded approach to helping health services.

Our range of programs and projects may seem incredibly broad, but they all have the same goals – to support you to get better and to help patients stay safer.

Our mission is outstanding healthcare for all Victorians. Always.
