The Serious Adverse Incident workstream is taking forward ten recommendations.
As part of this work, a specific recommendation sets out to maximise the involvement of families in Serious Adverse Incident investigations in Health and Social Care.
A group of people including HSC staff, service users, carers and Department of Health representatives, have developed a draft ‘Statement of what you should expect in relation to a Serious Adverse Incident Review’. This Statement outlines the process which will be put in place should a Serious Adverse Incident or SAI take place in a Health and Social Care setting. This seeks to help people who have been impacted by a SAI understand what they should expect from the review and who will be involved in the process.
The Department is currently seeking your views on the draft Statement of what you should expect in relation to a Serious Adverse Incident Review’ document. If you would like to comment on the draft document, please complete the survey here.
