National patient safety incident reports: September 2017

(0)

Analysis of the patient safety incidents reported in England to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) up to June 2017.

For practical reasons we publish two sets of National patient safety incident reports (NaPSIRs) simultaneously. This publication includes reports covering incidents to June 2017, and to March 2017. NaPSIRs were previously called Quarterly Data Summaries (QDS).

The data

The NaPSIRs set out the number of patient safety incidents reported to the NRLS and describe their patterns and trends. The data include all patient safety incidents reported by NHS organisations in England.

Two sets of data and analysis are presented in each NaPSIR data report:
  • the number of reports made to the NRLS by quarter, using data based on the date that the report was received
  • an overview of patterns and trends in incident reports using data based on the date that the incidents occurred
