Data based on incidents that occurred in England from 1 April to 30 September 2016 and were submitted to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) by the 30 November 2016.

The data

Every six months we publish national statistics of the organisation patient safety incident reports. This is data for NHS providers on the breakdown of patient safety incidents they have reported to the NRLS.

Due to a technical error the incident category data for NHS community trusts was revised on 04 April 2017. The data now on this webpage is a correction of the data first released on 22 March 2017. The revision only affects data for community trusts, data for other organisational clusters is not affected.
