    A year ago, you implemented a new approach to auditing at Barnsley. Can you tell us what prompted it? In healthcare, we tend to measure safety by looking at negatives. The number of falls, the number of category 2 pressure ulcers, the number of adverse events etc. Our whole system is built on it, from local auditing and Datix reporting, to CQC inspections. But counting the number of pressure ulcers for example, doesn’t really tell you about the standards of pressure ulcer care. I wanted to look at things differently; to focus more on the interventions and good practice that helps ke

    The report shows that mortality at 30 days is twice as high in IHF compared to non-IHF. Analysis of the 2018 NHFD data indicates that there is a delay in time to surgery, as well as worse outcomes relating to post-operative mobility, delirium and length of stay. The report also found high participation levels with full participation from Welsh health boards, very high participation from English acute trusts, and high engagement from English community trusts. An impressive proportion of English mental health trusts registered, despite no previous involvement with NAIF. The submission of ca
