Due to the national effort to support the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic, as of 24 March 2020, the Patient Safety Measurement Unit (PSMU) has suspended data collection from trusts. It is therefore not necessary for trusts to upload monthly data or highlight reports to this portal.

Phase 2 of the Maternal and Neonatal Safety Improvement Programme was launched on 9 March. For the time being, only essential and coronavirus-related activities, including maternal and neonatal deterioration improvement work, will continue.

Your data remains valuable to us and is crucial to evaluating the National Patient Safety Improvement Programmes. We will be in touch as soon as we can about how future data collection and reporting will take place. Thank you for your support.

If you see a No Data available Message like this one below it means that your organisation’s data isn't available in any of the datasets that are accessed by the PSMU Team.

There are many potential reasons for this, maybe there has been a recent merger ? Data may have been assigned to "old" organisation codes?

It might be that the data submission was excluded for some reason? There could be a cleaning / validation issue?

The best thing to do is contact your local data management / information services teams to help investigate the reasons for this.

We cannot help resolve any data flow issues, all we can see is if the data is there (or not).
