Issue of healthcare profession alert notices

NHS England has written to NHS Trust medical directors and area team medical directors setting out interim arrangements for issuing healthcare professional alert notices.

In the letter, the secretary of state has directed the National Health Service Litigation Authority to operate the healthcare professional alert notices (HPAN) system from 1 April 2013.

NHS organisations who wish to request the issue of an alert notice should notify the National Clinical Assessment Service (NCAS), part of the NHS LA, at hpan@ncas.nhs.uk.
