Quality Payments: List of patient safety alerts and recalls published

July 27, 2017

A new page has been published on the PSNC website which lists:

  • patient safety alerts and recalls which have previously been highlighted as news stories on the PSNC website;
  • advice and guidance relating to patient safety which have previously been highlighted as news stories on the PSNC website; and
  • a link to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) monthly drug safety updates.

Although pharmacy teams should have responded as appropriate to the above within the required time frames, those that have been highlighted as news stories on the PSNC website have been listed on this page as a quick reference for pharmacy teams to check that they are aware of all of these and have taken appropriate action when required.

Community pharmacy contractors may wish to refer to this page when completing their patient safety report to meet the Quality Payments Scheme quality criterion which states:

Written safety report at premises level available for inspection at review point, covering analysis of incidents and incident patterns (taken from an ongoing log), evidence of sharing learning locally and nationally, and actions taken in response to national patient safety alerts.

The patient safety report should contain details of how contractors have responded to medicines recalls and national patient safety alerts. Further information on what else should be included in the report can be found on the Quality Payments – Patient safety report page of the PSNC website.

The page can be accessed using the shortlink: psnc.org.uk/patientsafetyinfo
