NCISH 10 standards for investigating serious incidents

NCISH has developed an abbreviated set of 10 principles of good practice for investigations conducted by NHS and independent sector mental health provider organisations following serious incidents. These standards are based on our recommendations from previous reviews of serious incidents and aided the development of the Royal College of Psychiatrists ‘Principles for full investigation of serious incidents’.
