CQC review of how NHS trusts investigate and learn from deaths

Published: 4 Aug 2016

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is looking at how NHS acute, community healthcare and mental health trusts investigate deaths and learn from their investigations. They also want to assess whether opportunities to prevent deaths have been missed.

If you’ve been affected by the way an NHS trust has reviewed or investigated a death, your feedback could play a valuable part in their review. Whether you feel the trust’s approach to reviewing or carrying out the investigation was good or bad, they would like to hear from you.

Your feedback will directly inform the review, which in turn should improve the way the NHS investigates, and learns from, deaths in the future.

The deadline for submitting your feedback is Sunday 14 August.
