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 resource from 1000 Lives Plus provides access to all the Annual Quality Statements published by NHS organisations in Wales, along with a range of supporting resources to guide organisations in how to compile these reports. Patient safety is a core component of these reports, and the annual statements provide a mechanism to both reflect on past performance and plan future aspirations.
This film tells the powerful and hard-hitting story of a tragic incident, in which a simple human and procedural mistake had catastrophic consequences at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
