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.
