Since the beginning of 2022, the transition from the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) to Learn from Patient Safety Events (LFPSE) has been at the forefront of the collective mind of quality assurance professionals in healthcare providers up and down the country.

The March 2023 deadline to have procured and begun testing your new LFPSE incident reporting system has been behind us for some months now and, as LFPSE is a changeable, adaptable way of working, there have been some changes as the rollout unfolds.

This, coupled with the launch and implementation of the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) has naturally led to questions and the need for updates.

Changes to Learn from Patient Safety Events (LFPSE)

The LFPSE transition has been well underway for over a year now, with some Trusts opting to migrate as soon as possible and others still in the process. The September 2023 deadline to have a working version of the system in place is approaching and a lot of focus on finding the best way of working with LFPSE for your organisation is underway.

LFPSE will never have a ‘final’ version and will always be evolving. With this in mind, Trusts needn’t worry about perfecting their use before the deadline.

With the rollout of a new way of working, change is inevitable.

The LFPSE taxonomy has a new V6 update that has been adapted based on the feedback that was received regarding V5.

The Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) is Coming

The Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) is rapidly being implemented across healthcare organisations. The official deadline for the PSIRF uptake is Autumn 2023. For more information on what PSIRF is, take a look at the blog post here.

Again, as with any new framework, there will be changes and updates that come along with it. That’s why it’s important to stay in the know about the latest progress so that your Trust has the best information to proceed.
