Introducing the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF)

16 Jun 2022
NHS England stand mini theatre

PSIRF will be introduced across NHS trusts and ICSs in England from June 2022, representing a significant shift in the way providers respond to patient safety incidents by promoting a more proportionate and effective response for learning and improvement. In this session the national patient safety team will provide an overview of PSIRF and what to expect in the different preparation phases over the next 12 months as the NHS transitions from the current Serious Incident Framework. The session will also highlight the role executive teams have in supporting the introduction of PSIRF in their organisation.
