Safety and Learning resources

Browse our resources

We hold one of the largest databases of healthcare related compensation claims in the world, complemented by data on practitioner performance concerns and the causes of contracting disputes in primary care. This is more than 25 years’ worth of data on concerns raised about NHS care.

We have a duty to use this information responsibly to drive positive change for patients and staff.

Our resources section is here to support the early resolution of contracting disputes, improvements in patient safety, a reduction in harm and a reduction in claims.

You can search for resources by topic (such as diabetes, general practice, emergency medicine, spinal infections, maternity), or by the type of resource you would like to view (such as report, video, presentation, animation).

If you would like any further information, please contact us via our contact webpages.
