    In 2016/17, 16 of 28 delay-related SIs resulted in harm. Therefore 43% of delay-related SIs were reported under the near miss criteria to proactively learn lessons prior to harm occurring.

    In 2017/18,  22 of 64 delay-related SIs resulted in harm. This equates to 34% and therefore 66% of SIs relating to delays were reported under the near miss criteria.

     During the period requested, no response delays were deemed to have directly caused a patient’s death.
