Work on DPSIMS is continuing while we prepare to move into Public Beta. There may be some impacts to overall timelines due to COVID-19, and we will minimise the requirements on providers during this period to allow them to focus their attention on the pandemic response.
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
