Human Factors for Healthcare
As care is becoming increasingly complex, the challenge to respond to the pressures and changes grows.
We understand your challenges and embrace the complexity. With first-hand experience working with a number of NHS trusts and regulatory bodies, we can share that experience with you. We work in close partnership with your teams, building and supporting them on the journey, ensuring knowledge is embedded, to give your organisations the best chance of sustainable change.

Dr. Lauren Morgan, C.ErgHF MCIEHF
My interest in healthcare started when my father fell from height and sustained injuries that required him to spend 6 weeks on his back. His observations about the processes or care built my interest in what I consider to be one of the most challenging, complex and rewarding industries to work in.
I am a Chartered Human Factors specialist, which means I studied Human Factors at University, and have continued to build my experience in applying human factors to achieved Chartered Status. I also have a PhD in human factors.
I have worked across a variety of healthcare settings, observing within theatre, studying ward rounds, designing clinical IT systems, investigating incidents and training clinical teams in aspects of human factors relevant to their work.
My experience in Human Factors gives me a tool set to study the clinical systems of work. What it also does is remind me of the importance of those working in the system. That's why I will always seek out those working in the system, learn from them and work with them on whatever the challenge is.

There has been so much more than simple training delivery, and it's your personalised approach that stands out for me. Your personal passion for improving quality of health service patient safety incident investigation is clear and shines through, alongside your professionalism."

"Lauren is a strong advocate for patient participation. She recognises the authenticity of involving patients and their families in safety research and investigation.
I personally value and appreciate every opportunity I have had to work with her in foregrounding the voice of patients and families. The safety world has much to learn from her."
