Consultation description

The Independent Patient Safety Investigations Service, which will operate from April 2016, will offer support and guidance to NHS organisations on investigations into serious patient safety incidents, and carry out certain investigations itself.

An Expert Advisory Group (EAG) has been set up to make recommendations on how the new investigation service should work, and is seeking views from a wide range of stakeholder. It wants views on 5 related themes:

  • independence, governance and accountability
  • engagement and transparency
  • what IPSIS should investigate
  • supporting improvement and learning
  • people, skills, operation

This online call for evidence is just one way in which those who have an interest in the Service can give their views to the Expert Advisory Group and face-to-face opportunities are also being planned.
