Royal College of Psychiatrists accredits Trust’s serious incident review process
The Trust’s serious incident review process has been accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Receiving the accreditation from the Serious Incident Review Accreditation Network demonstrates the quality of the Trust’s procedures following a serious incident.
The accreditation was awarded following a significant amount of work by the patient safety support team. The process also involved staff who had taken part in serious incident investigations providing their feedback on their experiences.
The Serious Incident Review Accreditation Network works with organisations to improve the standards and quality of serious incident review processes. The accreditation, which saw the team undergo self and external reviews, lasts for three years.
Patient safety manager Helen Roberts said: “The Trust actively encourages and supports staff to report all incidents so that we can learn from experiences and improve safety for staff, service users and their families. Receiving the accreditation is great recognition of our processes and the work of the team, and we’re really proud of the achievement.”
