Patient Safety Incident report form – Scotland

Step 1 of 3

  • This form is to be used to record details of medication safety incidents that are related to errors and near misses that occur within the pharmacy. This form does not count as formal notification of a dispensing error to the NPA as your indemnity provider; this should be done separately by telephone if appropriate. Patient information should not be included in this electronic form.

    The NPA Scottish Patient Safety Incident Reporting Service is currently available to all members of community pharmacy teams in Scotland using the specific Scotland Reporting Form for 'near miss' and 'error' patient safety incidents. The anonymised reports will be reviewed for trends at least twice a year with a summary NPA Scottish Patient Safety Incident Report published to share learning.
