As an NHS Organisation we are required to put in place a framework that provides assurance and demonstrates we are learning when a death occurs at our hospital which is deemed ‘avoidable’. Learning from an avoidable death is an essential part of preventing avoidable death in the future.

This policy aims to describe the steps required for The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital to meet the required standards as laid out within the national policy from NHS England.
