Pharmacy Compliance with LFPSE
Pharmapod is supporting pharmacies like yours to be in compliance with the mandatory NHS Learn From Patient Safety Events (LFPSE) service. LFPSE will be required by 30 September 2023.
Our leading pharmacy Incident Management platform is available to ensure your pharmacy meets new LFPSE requirements for patient safety event reporting.
What is LFPSE?
LFPSE is replacing the current National Reporting and Learning System and Strategic Executive Information System to offer better support for staff from all health and care sectors, including pharmacy.
This will result in one national NHS system for the recording of patient safety events. The system will support better analysis of safety events, and use technology like machine learning to enhance insights and key learnings.
For your pharmacy, this means LFPSE will reduce workloads around safety events, with the incident reported just once through our connected Pharmapod platform.
More information on LFPSE is available on the NHS England website.
