We are an independent campaign group (registered as a charitable trust) which aims to stimulate dialogue and demonstrate through concrete action how a better understanding of the role of human factors can have a significant impact on safety, quality and productivity in healthcare.
If you would like to know more about the science behind human factors, visit our Human factors theory page.
CHFG is a broad coalition of healthcare professionals, managers and users of services who have partnered with experts in human factors from healthcare and other high-risk industries to campaign for change in the NHS.
Our vision is of a healthcare system that places an understanding of human factors at the heart of improving clinical, managerial and organisational practice leading to significant improvements in safety and efficiency. Our Manifesto for change (see below) outlines how we plan to achieve this vision.
