We routinely publish an annual review, investigation bulletins, investigation reports and responses to our safety recommendations and national learning reports.
Our annual review gives a summary of HSIB's achievements and reflections on how we’re meeting our purpose, which is to improve patient safety through effective and independent investigations that do not apportion blame or liability.
National investigations programme
As part of our national investigations programme we publish bulletins and a final report with safety recommendations for each investigation. These documents are available to download as PDFs from individual investigation pages. We also publish responses from national bodies to our safety recommendations on individual investigation pages. You can find all of our national investigations in the investigations section.
Maternity investigations programme
The way we work and report on maternity investigations is different to our national investigations. Individual maternity investigation reports are shared with the family, the NHS trust and the healthcare professionals who were involved in the incident. Unlike our national investigation reports, we don’t publish individual maternity investigation reports.
As part of our maternity investigations programme we publish thematic reports and an annual review. Find out more on the maternity reports and publications page.
National learning reports
We publish national learning reports that describe common themes and findings that arise from both our national investigations programme and maternity investigations programme. We use the information from these national learning reports to inform future HSIB investigations.
Our national learning reports:
Equality in our workforce
This report provides information about equality in HSIB’s workforce. We share this information to comply with the public sector equality duty, which requires us to publish information relating to people who share a relevant protected characteristic.
Staff survey results
In 2019 HSIB launched its first full staff survey. We had a response rate of over 91% and some extremely positive outcomes with a significant number of staff feeling proud of our organisation and wanting to be part of our organisation.
We have published the results of our survey as we have a desire to be open, honest and transparent in everything we do.
We know we still have work to do in some areas of our report and we are working with staff to ensure our action plan is a success.
