Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group

Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group The aim of the Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group (SALG) is to highlight potential or existing patient safety issues to those practicing anaesthesia. Part of this remit is to encourage incident reporting for the purpose of learning. SALG core membership is comprised of members from the RCoA, AAGBI and National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA).

A wider group of advisory members represent a number of specialist societies and are called upon to provide an expert opinion on specific issues. A list of represented organisations is in the text box on the right (ie those giving advisory input).

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 there are more than 800 individuals who are relied upon to disseminate information and to provide feedback. You may join the Safety Network by emailing the RCoA Patient Safety Administrator
