LFPSE-compliant Local Risk Management System (LRMS) suppliers

From Spring 2021, a new national Learn from patient safety events (LFPSE) service (previously called the patient safety incident management system – PSIMS) will enter its public beta stage. The new system will be phased in to replace the current National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS).

Healthcare providers that record patient safety incidents on Local Risk Management System (LRMS) software will need to assure themselves that their software suppliers are using, or have a plan to move to, LFPSE-compatible products, so they are able to:

  • Connect with LFPSE to record and share details of patient safety events with the national NHS system, and access learning to support safety improvement.
  • Continue to fulfil their obligations to report certain notifiable incidents to the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which in many organisations is routinely fulfilled by reporting to the national patient safety team.
  • Maintain their ability to share certain patient safety events with other national organisations with a remit for safety, including MHRA and PHE, to reduce the need for duplicate reporting.

NHS England is assisting healthcare providers with their ability to provide patient safety information to us, and to other national organisations with a remit for safety including CQC, MHRA, PHE etc, through LFPSE. NHS England is not acting on behalf of healthcare providers in relation to services provided to them under current contracts with vendors of LRMS software or future procurements of such services. Healthcare providers should adhere to the procurement rules and their own policies when procuring these services. All vendors we are aware are of operating in this market have been notified of the requirements for compliance and the process for undertaking an assessment. The same will apply in relation to any new market entrants of which NHS England become aware from time to time.
