star this property answer text <p>We note the Scottish National Patient Safety Programme aims to improve the safety and reliability of health and social care, and reduce harm.</p><p> </p><p>Like Scotland, our aim is to improve patient safety and for the National Health Service to be one of the safest healthcare systems in the world.</p><p> </p><p>Following the tragic events at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, the Government has introduced a number of significant programmes to promote and encourage better regulation, greater transparency and candour, and a culture of learning in the NHS in England, drawing from other safety critical industries.</p><p> </p><p>To further drive a culture of learning, the NHS trusts are required to review and investigate deaths of their patients and publish the learning and steps they are taking to improve patient safety. An independent Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) was set up in April 2016 and is now conducting major safety investigations into the most serious risks for patients, with a specific focus on system-wide learning and improvement. The HSIB’s remit was extended in April 2018 to include the investigations of early neonatal deaths, term stillbirths and cases of severe brain injury in babies as well as all cases of maternal death. Work is underway to further improve medicines safety including the accelerated rollout of electronic prescribing in hospitals, monitoring higher risk prescribing practice linked to hospital admissions, and addressing so called ‘human factors’ that contribute to errors.</p><p> </p><p>In June 2018, the Government announced a further package of measures to improve patient safety including a new National Clinical Improvement Programme that will provide NHS consultants with confidential data on their clinical results and help improve patient outcomes, the introduction of a system of medical examiners and the intention to extend the Learning from Deaths programme to general practice and ambulance trusts to promote learning and enable health organisations and healthcare professionals to learn from one another.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to eradicating Never Events and ensuring best practice is shared throughout the health care system.</p><p>That is why in December 2017, the Secretary of State commissioned the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to undertake a safety thematic review of Never Events, under Section 48 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.</p><p>The CQC’s review, which is expected to report in autumn 2018, will examine the underlying issues in National Health Service trusts in England that contribute to the occurrence of Never Events and identify the learning that can be applied to wider safety issues.</p><p>The ‘Never Events Policy and Framework’ was revised in March 2015 and the definition of Never Events changed to provide further clarity over their purpose, and; to ensure incidents are easily identifiable when they occur and are not dependent on the severity of outcome of the incident.</p><p>The list of Never Events was reviewed at the same time to ensure that they were all compliant with the revised definition and to consider any new issues that were appropriate to be introduced as Never Events into the NHS in England.</p><p>Further revisions to the Never Events policy and framework and an updated Never Events list were published in January 2018. Therefore it is not possible to compare the number of Never Events reported on an annual basis.</p><p>As mentioned in my earlier reply to Question <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-06-12/152793/" target="_blank">152793</a>, NHS providers are encouraged to report all Never Events, and the CQC regards failure to report a Never Event, a breach of a provider’s registration requirement.</p><p>The number of Never Events reported by independent providers is also increasing as they report more incidents to our National Reporting and Learning System.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Currently, NHS England has a leadership role for patient safety in the National Health Service and supports providers to identify, understand and manage risks that might affect the safety of patients. The primary source for identifying risks is the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS). The NRLS operates as a database and holds over 1.4 million locally reported patient safety incidents. These are reviewed to help address the identified issues or risks in the NHS. NHS England alerts NHS trusts of emerging patient safety risks via the National Patient Safety Alerting System – a three-stage alerting process which ensures the timely sharing of relevant safety information. The system also encourages information sharing between organisations so that examples of best practice can be widely adopted.</p><p>NHS trusts are expected to review their own patient safety incidents. The revised Serious Incident Framework published in March 2015 has sought to simplify the incident management process and ensure that serious incidents are identified correctly, investigated thoroughly and, most importantly, learned from to prevent the likelihood of similar incidents happening again.</p><p>The NHS standard contract also stipulates that providers must consider and respond to the recommendations arising from any audit, Serious Incident report or Patient Safety Incident report.</p>
