Whilst our staff work tirelessly to deliver safe, high quality healthcare, it is important that we continuously provide clear direction and guidance to ensure a coordinated approach to identifying, review and responding to death of all patients who die under our management or care.
One of the key aims of our new policy is to promote transparency in learning from death, ensuring we have appropriate engagement in place for family/carers involvement where wished.
Our policy describes the framework for identifying, investigating and learning from death. Ensuring findings are reported both within and outside the organisation, in order to facilitate wider improvement across health and social care.
A report goes to our public board meeting once each quarter, in September, December, March and June. You can find the board papers on our on our board meetings page.
