Abstract

This report highlights the variations in the way patient-facing NHS boards in Scotland manage adverse events. Healthcare Improvement Scotland will now lead work in designing a national approach to enable a deeper understanding of why variations in reporting occur in the first place, and aimed at ensuring greater consistency in reporting by all Boards in future.
