In a nutshell: The publication of six-monthly data on patient safety incidents reported to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) between 1 October 2013 and 30 April 2014 shows the NHS is continuing to get better at recognising and reporting patient safety incidents. The increase in the level of reported incidents shows that the NHS is continuing to be more open and transparent about reporting patient safety incidents. Incident reporting is important at a local level because it allows clinicians to learn about why patient safety incidents happen within their own service and organisation, and what they can do to keep their patients safe from avoidable harm.
