Recommendation

The Trust should review its action plan process to strengthen action sign off, specifically:

  • A section in the action plan template to assign individual and/or executive team¬†responsibility for signing off
    actions
  • Details of executive team oversight
  • The names and roles of individuals responsible for signing off actions.

Actions to be taken

1. Adjust action plan template to ensure that it is clear that a lead is responsible within the revised root cause analysis template.

2. Add action plan lead to Datix action plan module.

3. Amend Serious Incident Policy to reflect to ensure that homicide cases final action plan approval is made at Trust-wide Patient Safety and Mortality Review Group and terms of reference for the group includes this.

4. New root cause analysis template to include action plan leads.
