Investigation of maternity incidents by the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch

Last November, the Health and Social Care Secretary announced that the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) will investigate certain categories of maternity incidents during 2018/19.

The HSIB will be rolling out this programme by region starting in April 2018 with full national coverage to be achieved by April 2019. Until HSIB formally notifies them in writing, providers should continue to investigate maternity incidents in the usual way. CCGs should be aware of the situation as they are the legal entities responsible for local oversight of serious incidents. For further information please refer to the HSIB Q&A.
