Sir Mike Richards: Learning, candour and accountability, 6th January 2017
“While elements of good practice exist, there is not a single NHS trust that is getting it completely right, which isn’t good enough. There is wide variation in the way NHS organisations become aware of the deaths of people in their care and inconsistencies in how decisions are made on whether to carry out a review or investigation after a patient has died.”
