The future of the patient safety incident reporting: upgrading the NRLS

Over the next three years the Development of the Patient Safety Incident Management System (DPSIMS) project will define and deliver the successor to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) and the Strategic Executive Information System (STEIS).

The NRLS is more than 13 years old and due for an upgrade, which is why we're working closely with stakeholders to create a system that will provide resources to support safety improvement and help the NHS learn when things go wrong.

The new system will:

  • meet both local and national needs in terms of accessibility to both staff and patients/carers
  • integrate with other systems
  • strike a balance of confidentiality and transparency
  • support an open and honest NHS culture devoted to continuous learning and improvement of patient safety
