A new hospital review process, supported by Sands, came into place across the UK, just before 2019. But is it working? Does it answer parents’ questions about why their baby died? Are parents even told by hospital staff a review of their care is taking place?

Introducing a practical engagement model, David Gilbert moves beyond the tick-the-box, patient feedback and representational approaches of traditional engagement methods that provide a narrow focus on user experience and, ultimately, distance patients and carers from decision-making.
This accessible eBook underscores equal involvement of patients and carers as an integral, respected part of decision-making – an inclusion that not only leads to better awareness but humanises healthcare for patients, staff and health professionals.

This project was commissioned because of an issue with multiple medicines records being held by different agencies for local children with complex needs and at the end of life. The project was highly commended by NICE and a poster was presented at the NICE Annual Conference in 2015 (see poster below).
This duplication of records was believed to be a major risk factor for medicines errors and a waste of clinical time. It also meant that parents needed to repeat information about their children’s medicines time and again, as they accessed services, including inpatient services, tertiary cen
