Progress on the recommendations from our review of how NHS trusts investigate and learn from deaths
"This month marks a year since we published the findings of our thematic review ‘Learning, Candour and Accountability’ which identified specific concerns about the way NHS trusts were investigating and learning when patients within their care die and the extent to which families and carers were involved in the investigations process.
The review made eight recommendations to help to improve the quality of investigations and ensure safer services for future patients.
Since then, the Department of Health and the National Quality Board (NQB) has been leading a programme of work to implement those recommendations with input from a number of organisations, including CQC, NHS England, NHS Digital and NHS Improvement."
