Mental Health Homicide & Serious Incident Investigations & Reviews
In 2013 NHS England assumed overarching responsibility for the commissioning of independent investigations into mental health homicides and serious incidents and introduced its revised Serious Incident Framework in April 2015.
Thankfully, serious incidents requiring investigation in healthcare are rare, but when they do occur systematic measures need to be in place to respond to them. Measures that protect patients, their families and carers and ensure that robust investigations are carried out, which result in organisations learning from serious incidents to minimise the risk of the incident happening again.

Investigation Review Evaluation
Very professional and compassionate approach to managing the families and their emotional distress by Grania Jenkins. She may genuinely have prevented a further mental health decline in some of them. Excellent liaison with the Medical Director regarding the needs of family members and which enabled him to manage the relationships more effectively.
