In a nutshell: NHS England has published the Never Events Policy Framework Review consultation. The consultation will help to show what needs to be done, and by whom, to prevent never events. Part of the review will also consider financial penalties for never events, and how this might be included in the NHS Standard Contract for 2015/16. The review is focusing on five key issues: the purpose, definition, list of, management, and application of learning from never events. The overall aim of the review is to keep patient safety as a focus for action, and to foster a culture which aims to share learning and improve, rather than to blame and penalise.
