1) The latest National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) impact report on maternity and neonatal care highlights some interesting findings on the impact of NICE guidance.

2) The NHS Improvement bi-annual official statistics reports include a raft of data sets, trends and analysis on patient safety incident reporting. The number of incidents reported to the NRLS for England continues to increase. Incident categories help us understand that certain types of incident are more common than others. Nationally, the top reported from April 2017-19 were ‘patient accident’, ‘implementation of care and ongoing monitoring/review’, ‘access, admission, transfer, discharge’ and ‘medication.’ which show a great connection to the PSC workstreams. 

Read more about these, as well as some exciting new workstreams in this issue
