About this event

The PSIRF that will replace the current Serious Incident Framework (2015) has recently been published. In developing and maintaining an effective system for responding to patient safety incidents (PSIs), the PSIRF represents a fundamental shift in how the NHS responds to PSIs for learning and improvement.

Less prescriptive, the PSIRF intends to support a proportionate approach to investigating PSIs. It makes no distinction between ‘patient safety incidents’ and ‘Serious Incidents’, removing the ‘Serious Incidents’ classification and the threshold for it. The aim of the PSIRF is to ensure that resources allocated to learning are balanced with those needed to deliver improvement.

This introductory session will cover:

  • An overview of the framework
  • The aims and objectives of the framework
  • The requirements for NHS trusts

The PSIRF is a contractual requirement under the NHS Standard Contract and as such, is mandatory for services provided under that contract, including acute, ambulance, mental health, and community healthcare providers. This includes maternity and all specialised services. Implementation of the PSIRF is required by September 2022.

Join partner Liz Hackett for this introductory session and watch out for our further webinars and support tools over the coming months as Hempsons support you in understanding, implementing and embedding a new approach to patient safety and learning.
