Please note this work has now been postponed
to Friday, 31 March

The system will be unavailable for the whole
day on Monday, 27 March whilst they transfer updates from the test
site to the live site. The admin access will still be available.

I’ve written a manual
IWR-1 form
  for people to use on Monday, 27
March (ONLY) which can be completed following an incident and
submitted to their nominated ODA Administrator. There are also
some Manual
Form guidance notes

The ODA Administrator can then enter the incidents the following
day once the system is back up and running. This process has been
agreed by AD of Quality & Patient Safety (QPS).

  • Following discussion with our consultant at
    Datix the schedule of Datix drop-in sessions and workshops has been
    withdrawn. The plan for roll-out is now to train a pool of
    super-users who will then cascade the training locally.

If you would like to make an expression of
interest to become a Datix super-user please contact us at
– the closing date will be Friday, 31 March.

All super-users will receive a full day’s
training from Datix which can be added to your Continued
Professional Development (CPD) folder. By attending the course you
will learn the whole functionality of the incident reporting system
and best practice guidance for completion of IWR-1 and IWR-2 forms.
The date of training is yet to be confirmed but will be announced
as soon as this is confirmed with Datix.

If you would like to share your ideas on how
we can improve the current incident reporting process please send
them to
