This event is an opportunity to hear from Dr Alice Oates (Darzi clinical fellow and psychiatrist) on her NHS Resolution report – “Learning from suicide related claims - a thematic review of NHS Resolution data”, from Tracey Herlihey of HSIB on its role in mental health investigations and from Dewi Ap-Thomas (Weightmans partner) on the coronial process and inquests.
Dr Alice Oates' report makes nine recommendations for system-wide quality improvements in mental health services, including the investigations that follow incidents. Coroners will be likely to review the report as part of their coronial investigations and whilst carrying out their duty to issue a Coroner’s Regulation 28 Report (Prevention of Future Death Reports – PFD).
Expect interactive discussion, debate and reflections on national practice, as well as participating in shared learning from harm. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear, compare, discuss and share with each other; the practical implications of implementing recommendations, as well as ways to improve staff support.
This event will benefit; Heads of Legal, Governance Leads, Medical and Nursing Directors, as well as clinicians and nurses working in mental health services and those working in A&E departments dealing with mental health patients. The invitation is to the full team. It has been designed with the aim of reducing avoidable harm and claims being brought against the NHS.
This is a free event, however places are limited and interest in our previous safety and learning events has been very high. Attendance is determined on a ‘first-come’ ‘first-serve’ basis – so don’t delay!
This event is part of a wider initiative by Weightmans to help assist Trusts in reducing avoidable harm by sharing with each other and learning from experiences on a day-to-day basis, understanding and pulling together all of the various NHS initiatives.
