About us

Although funded by the Department of Health and hosted by NHSI, we operate independently. We're also independent from regulatory bodies like the Care Quality Commission (CQC). By offering a new perspective and developing meaningful and influential recommendations we aim to drive positive change at a wider level.

Any person, group or organisation can share cases for potential investigation via the safety awareness form. Each submission is reviewed against our criteria, and an important part of assessment is whether we can learn something new that improves practice across the health system. We use a range of approaches focusing on establishing cause and identifying risk.
