Patient Safety Incident Reporting Plan (PSIRP)

This plan outlines how we as an organisation will look at patient safety incidents, what tools will be used to investigate and how it will share and embed learning into everyday work.

The objectives

PSIRP forms part of the national Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF), introduced by NHS England, which removes the requirement that only incidents meeting the criteria of a “serious incident” are investigated.

There will be greater engagement with those affected by safety events, including patients, families and colleagues, ensuring that they are treated with compassion and able to be part of an investigation.
