Patient safety alerts
Patient safety alerts are official notices issued by NHS England which give advice or instructions to NHS bodies on how to prevent specific types of incidents which are known to occur in the NHS and cause serious harm or death.
AvMA’s research has shown that these alerts are not always complied with in a timely manner, leaving patients at unnecessary risk. AvMA continues to press regulators to closely monitor compliance with these alerts and take action over non-compliance.
