HSIB has issued its first interim bulletin. It focuses on Cardiac and Vascular Patient Pathways, and the very sad death of a patient receiving care on such a pathway.
The Bulletin sets out the background to the case and why HSIB decided to investigate, as well as the safety issues that the team of HSIB investigators have identified so far.
HSIB will continue to explore the identified safety issues both in relation to this case and in regard to national practice. Any further information that maybe relevant is welcomed. HSIB will report any significant developments via interim bulletins, as the investigation progresses, but will not make any further comment at this stage
