Welcome to NRLS Reporting

The National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) is a central database of patient safety incident reports. Since the NRLS was set up in 2003, the culture of reporting incidents to improve safety in healthcare has developed substantially.

All information submitted is analysed to identify hazards, risks and opportunities to continuously improve the safety of patient care. Please click here for further information.

The published Organisation Patient Safety Incident Reports are generated by the Explorer Tool and can be found here.
