Patient safety investigation


Patient safety investigations identify how and why patient safety incidents happen. Analysis is used to identify areas for change and to develop recommendations which deliver safer care for our patients.

Every day a million people are treated safely and successfully in the NHS.

However, when incidents do happen it is important that learning is used to make improvements that significantly reduce the likelihood of the same incident occurring again.
