Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF)

The Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) sets out the NHS’s approach to developing and maintaining effective systems and processes for responding to patient safety incidents for the purpose of learning and improving patient safety. It replaces the current Serious Incident Framework and represents a significant shift in the way the NHS responds to patient safety incidents. The Oxford Patient Safety Collaborative will be supporting healthcare organisations in our region in preparing to use the new framework. It is expected to be implemented across the NHS in 2023.
