No assessment has been made of the potential merits of creating an NHS Never Event for discharging newborns home to temporary accommodation without a cot. A consultation on the future of the Never Events Framework was conducted by NHS England, and ran between 5 February and 5 May 2024. The consultation sought views on whether the existing Never Events Framework remains an effective mechanism to drive patient safety improvement. NHS England will respond to the consultation in due course.
