I have a method on wcf service and throws a nullexception when I try to assign a value to a property on my class. Here is my method code.

The data comes back from my call to my business object, and I can see the records in the list, what I am trying to do is build out the array, unless there  anyone knows of a different way to handle this. As I just want to call this and return a json object of my results.

 public PatientRecords[] GetPatientName()
        {

            //Will pull back the patient list for the careplans that belong to the site.
            Patients patient_data = new Patients();
            IList<sidwservices.sidw_ef.patient> ReturnValue = patient_data.GetPatientList();
            //Free that object
            patient_data = null;
            PatientRecords[] returns = new PatientRecords[ReturnValue.Count];
            int x = 0;
            for (int i = 0; i < ReturnValue.Count; ++i)
            {
                //Log error message
                ErrorHandler.LogElmahMessage("GetPatientName1", "SidwServices-Careplan");
                //Free error handler object
                ErrorHandler = null;

                //FAILS HERE WITH A NULL EXCEPTION
                returns[x].id = ReturnValue[i].id;
                returns[x].mrn = ReturnValue[i].mrn;

                //Log error message
                ErrorHandler.LogElmahMessage("GetPatientName3", "SidwServices-Careplan");
                //Free error handler object
                ErrorHandler = null;
                x = x + 1;
                
            }
            //Log error message
            ErrorHandler.LogElmahMessage("GetPatientName", "SidwServices-Careplan");
            //Free error handler object
            ErrorHandler = null;
            return returns;
        }
