National quarterly data on patient safety incident reports: September 2016

(0)

Analysis of the patient safety incidents reported in England and Wales to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) up to June 2016.

For practical reasons we currently publish two quarterly data summaries simultaneously. This publication covers incidents to June 2016 and a further summary covering incidents to March 2016.

The data

The quarterly data summary reports 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 and Wales.

Two sets of data and analysis are presented in each quarterly data summary:
  • 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
