What is it?
Datix is the reporting system for recording clinical incidents or ‘near misses’. It allows for the sharing of the details of incidents; enabling weaknesses in the system to be identified, customs and practices to be changed and staff to be retrained where necessary. Datix allows incidents to be reported in real-time reducing delays experienced with paper systems.
How do I get access?
Access to DATIX is through StaffNet and can be found under the ‘Applications’ menu. Guidance on completion of an incident form is available on the DATIX StaffNet page.
More details about the system can be found in the Incident Management Policy: http://www.staffnet.ggc.scot.nhs.uk/Corporate%20Services/Clinical%20Governance/Clinical%20Risk/Documents/Incident%20Management%20Policy.pdf
