We are a team of experienced safety investigators, led by the chief investigator Keith Conradi. We operate independently of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and NHS organisations.
Chief investigator: Keith Conradi
Our chief investigator is Keith Conradi. He has extensive experience in the field of safety investigation. Before joining HSIB, he was chief investigator for the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) and has been involved in many investigations of accidents and serious incidents throughout the world.
The investigation team is made up of HSIB investigators, external expert advisers and local investigation teams.
Our investigators are central to the process and oversee the investigation from start to finish. They operate independently of any other organisation - including the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Department of Health and NHS organisations.
They work closely with patients and their families and carers, healthcare staff, trusts, hospitals and other healthcare providers in England. Their work includes gathering information, interviewing anyone thought to be relevant to the investigation, and preserving evidence within appropriate Data Protection guidelines, including records and equipment.
