Incident Policy

Incident management underpins a basic part of the risk management framework for South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. It is important that incidents are reported and investigated in a consistent way and that lessons learnt are shared within the organisation to reduce the likelihood of similar incidents occurring within our services. This Policy supersedes the Incident, Near Miss and Serious Incident Policy.

This Policy should be read in conjunction with the Standard Operating Procedures for Incident Reporting, Duty of Candour and Serious Incident Investigation.
