National Population Failsafe Management Service

The National Failsafe Management Service (NPFMS) is a digital system for population tracking and screening.

This service was never launched. It was removed from the programme scope in April 2020.

About this service

This service is part of the wider National Events Management Service (NEMS).

The service uses information from NEMS to tell systems where a child is and which professionals are caring for them.

It prompts parents about important health interventions for their child and guides professionals to deliver the standard programme of care. The system sends alerts to subscribers if actions are not completed.
