Professional Standards for Error Reporting

error-reporting-front-cover

The professional standards describe good practice and good systems of care for reporting, learning sharing, taking action and review of incidents (error reporting) as part of a patient safety culture. Their implementation will improve patient safety and the quality of pharmaceutical services.

They have been developed by the RPS, APTUK and the Pharmacy Forum of UK with the support of an expert steering group and public consultation.

Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the wider pharmacy team across the United Kingdom will find these standards the most useful.
They may also be of interest to the public, to people who use pharmacy and healthcare services, healthcare professionals working with pharmacy teams, regulators and commissioners of pharmacy services.

Your dedication and commitment during the pandemic has been exceptional.

As we brace for a potential second wave of coronavirus, we know that pharmacy will be at the forefront of delivering healthcare.

Whether it’s flu vaccinations, dealing with local lockdowns or getting ready to fight a second wave, we need decisions and assurances from the Government now. We must make sure pharmacists get enough supplies of PPE and rapid access to testing in all care settings.

If the enormous mental and physical strain of the past few months is repeated ahead of this winter, the health service will be on its knees. We will be there to make sure pharmacists get mental health and wellbeing support.

We will continue to work hard to give you the tools and guidance to do your job safely. And fight to make sure you get the recognition you deserve.

We are proud to support you. But without you, none of this will be possible.
