A short film produced by Health Education England to support healthcare professionals in training and staff at all levels to report and respond to concerns about patient safety.
This film explains the innovative approach to safety improvement that has been developed by West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, called “Onion”. Onion is a way to “peel back the layers” of what stops doctors, nurses and other staff being able to consistently deliver high quality, safe care to our patients.
This series of videos presents the powerful and tragic story of Lewis Blackman, who died in hospital following routine surgery, as told by his mother, Helen Haskell. The story is structured in five parts to facilitate learning and teaching, and each video comes with a selection of suggested questions to guide discussions or teaching plans.
