Patient Safety Incident Reporting

NHS England manage the national learn from patient safety events (LFPSE) service, a centralised system to record information and offer data and analysis about patient safety events to support safety improvement across all care settings.

All healthcare staff in England, including those working in primary care, are encouraged to use the system to record any events where:

  • a patient was harmed, or could have been harmed
  • there has been a poor outcome, but it is not yet clear whether an incident contributed or not
  • risks to patient safety in the future have been identified
  • good care has been delivered that could be learned from to improve patient safety.
