CCGOIS - 5.1 Patient safety incidents


For each of a CCG's five main providers, this indicator shows the rate of patient safety incidents per 1,000 total provider bed days

Clinical rationale

Improved readiness of the NHS to report harm and to learn from it.

Reporting patient safety incidents and identifying common risks to patients should increase awareness and provide opportunities to improve patient safety.

Data source

Organisation Patient Safety Incident workbook, reported to the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) by the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS)

HES Admitted Patient Care (APC) data


For each CCG this indicator will report the number of patient safety incidents as reported by their five main providers alongside a rate of patient safety incidents per 1,000 total provider bed days.

The five main providers are the ones that a CCG commissions most activity with. All of the figures are reported at provider level.
