1. These incidents exclude duplicated incidents and incidents where the submitting organisation/individual did not consent to provide their details. Incidents where the data provided did not meet our minimum requirements were excluded from these results. Incidents from Welsh organisations, community pharmacies and NHS Direct were also not included.
2. As reporting to the NRLS is done on a voluntary basis, the figures provided should not be used as an indicator of national trends.
3. NRLS Reports Disclaimer Statement: NPSA Staff
The incidents summarised in this report have been drawn from the NPSA National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS). The NRLS supports the goal of the NPSA to make patient care safer. The NRLS is a confidential reporting system. The incidents are reported through a variety of routes, by individual NHS staff, including through local trust risk management systems and web based e-forms (including an open access e-form). The individual reports are not investigated or verified by the NPSA. Since these incidents are self-reported they are not necessarily representative of the NHS across England and Wales and therefore need interpreting with care.
4. Permission must be obtained from the NPSA before the information contained within the report it is published or passed on to a third party outside the NPSA.

The White Paper Pharmacy in England; Building on StrengthsDelivering the Future (copies have already been placed in the Library) looks at aligning the future provision of pharmaceutical services and sets out proposals to look at the market entry criteria for doctors and pharmacists, but no decision has yet been taken on the criteria to be used in future for patients to receive pharmaceutical services from their general practitioner.
A consultation paper will be launched next month that will look at the options for the future and will provide everyone with an opportunity to contribute, healthcare professional and patient alike. I refer my hon. Friend to the written statement I made on 17 July 2008, Official Report, column 49WS.
