Detail

The ‘never events’ list has been updated with minor amendments to two of the never event definitions. The changes are to never event number 18, ‘Transplantation of ABO incompatible organs as a result of error’ and never event number 23, ‘Misidentification of patients’. This paper sets out the revised list and definitions for use in the NHS in 2012/13.

The policy framework set out in the list of never events for 2011 to 2012 is still valid.
