Issue date01 August 2008
TypeData report

This quarterly data summary analyses patient safety incident reports received by the National Reporting and Learning Service between October 2003 and the end of March 2008. NHS organisations in England and Wales reported 2,375,410 patient safety incident reports during this period.

 

The document provides details of the volume of incident reports received, the sector they are from, the type of incidents they describe, and the level of harm to the patient(s) involved.

 

Two sets of data and analysis are presented:

  • Section 1 describes the level of reporting by quarter and uses data based on the date that the report was received. The data cover the period from October 2003 to the end of March 2008.
  • Section 2 contains an overview of patterns and trends in patient safety incident reports. It uses data based on the date that the patient safety incidents were reported as having occurred. The data cover the four quarters between January 2007 and December 2007.

 

The report contains features on bleep-related and radiotherapy-related incidents, which can be downloaded separately.

 

The report is accompanied by a workbook which provides all the data underpinning the analysis, and contains further notes.
