Williams review into gross negligence manslaughter in healthcare

The review makes recommendations to support a more just and learning culture in the healthcare system. It covers:

  • the process for investigating gross negligence manslaughter
  • reflective practice of healthcare professionals
  • the regulation of healthcare professionals

 

This rapid policy review into gross negligence manslaughter in healthcare was chaired by Professor Sir Norman Williams.

The review was set up to look at the wider patient safety impact of concerns among healthcare professionals that simple errors could result in prosecution for gross negligence manslaughter, even if they happen in the context of broader organisation and system failings.
