In a nutshell: A new e-form has been launched to enable general practice staff to quickly and easily report patient safety incidents to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS). The number of safety incidents reported to the NRLS from primary care remains low, making it difficult to develop appropriate and relevant support and learning resources for practice staff. The new e-form can be completed in a matter of minutes, with many questions requiring quick and simple answers. Practices can choose to include their practice code or can submit a report anonymously. Patient identifiable information is also not required. Upon submission of the incident report there is the option to request a bounce back email with a Significant Event Audit template which can be used for CPD, Appraisal and Revalidation. This can also provide evidence of patient safety activity during CQC inspections.
