Title: Alert from the Central Alerting System Helpdesk Team - The introduction of National Patient Safety Alerts

Broadcast content:
CAS users will shortly begin to see changes in what we issue. 

The National Patient Safety Alerting Committee (NaPSAC), which consists of representation from all organisations that issue safety information to the NHS, is working to ensure that all future National Patient Safety Alerts set out clear and effective system-wide actions that providers must take on critical patient safety issues.

This alert provides information about these changes and corresponding actions for organisations to take.

Additional information: NHS England Regional Offices: please cascade this information to primary care providers.

Alert reference: CHT/2019/001
