NPSA - Patient Safety analysis

The National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) has published its first analysis of patient safety data in England and Wales and the first issue of the new Patient Safety Bulletin – a review of learning from reported incidents.

The new report, Building a memory: preventing harm, reducing risks and improving patient safety, offers a unique overview of what is going wrong and describes the role of the Patient Safety Observatory in supporting improvements in patient safety at a national level.

The Patient Safety Bulletin is a new way of providing feedback to the NHS to help organisations identify and address the patient safety problems or risks that they may face locally.
