Through the Trust’s strategy ‘Together We Care 2022-2025’ we are committed to instilling a culture of safety and learning from patient safety incidents to reduce harm and improve patient experience.

To support us in achieving this, the Trust will be transitioning to the NHS Patient Safety Incident Response Framework throughout 2024.


Patient Safety Incident Framework (PSIRF)

PSIRF represents a significant change in the way NHS Trusts respond to patient safety incidents and is a key part of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy.

PSIRF is replacing the Serious Incident Framework (2015).

PSIRF support s the development and maintenance of an effective patient safety incident response system, with four key integrated aims;

  1. Compassionate engagement and involvement of those affected by patient safety incidents
  2. Application of a range of system-based approached to learning from patient safety incidents
  3. Considered and proportionate responses to patient safety incidents
  4. Supportive oversight focused on strengthening response system functioning and improvement

The Trust’s Patient Safety Incident Response Plan outlines our safety priorities and planned responses to patient safety incidents for 2024-2026.

Further information can be found about PSIRF on the NHS England website.
