Learning from deaths

Death is a natural event for all of us and Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust is committed to supporting bereaved families and carers when a loved one is lost.  Not all deaths are directly associated with the care patients receive in a hospital or whilst under the care of NHS services.  However, it is important for us to recognise opportunities to learn from any issues identified during a patient’s episode of care, to improve the delivery of services we provide.  To ensure that the Trust has a robust process in place it has developed and published a Mortality Review Policy – the policy can be found below:
