Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch Reports

The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) conducts independent investigations of patient safety concerns in NHS-funded care across England. HSIB aims to improve safety through effective and independent investigations that don't apportion blame or liability. Investigations identify the contributory factors that have led to harm or have the potential to cause harm to patients. The recommendations aim to improve healthcare systems and processes in order to reduce risk and improve safety.
