National Patient Safety Alerting System.

National Health Service England

In response to the Francis report, this three-stage reporting system was launched to help National Health Service organizations learn from incidents and incorporate changes to reduce similar risks. The first stage alerts organizations of a new patient safety hazard, the second distributes practices or resources to address the issue, and the third disseminates a checklist to ensure safety strategies have been implemented. In April 2016 the alerts program was integrated into the new NHS Improvement initiative.
