CQC and the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) - publish a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) have published a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreement (2 April 2019). The agreement sets out how both organisations will work together to promote the safety and wellbeing of people receiving NHS care in England.
The HSIB was established in April 2017 to conduct independent investigations into patient safety concerns in NHS-funded care across England. They make recommendations aimed at improving healthcare systems and processes and direct those recommendations to relevant organisations with power to make improvements.
