HSIB need advisers for maternity investigation programme

7 November 2018

The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) is seeking subject matter advisers to provide clinical expertise to support their maternity investigation programme. 

Working closely with the investigation teams, you’ll provide advice in relation to elements of an investigation that relates to your specialist interest.

HSIB will undertake a significant number of investigations focusing on maternity services and perinatal care, specifically all cases of maternal death related to pregnancy and other cases meeting the criteria of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists ‘Each Baby Counts’ programme – approximately 1000 investigations per year. 

Clinical expertise will be essential to ensure consistency and quality assurance to each investigation. These investigations will also champion good quality investigation across the NHS and lead on approaches to enhance local capability in investigation. 

HSIB was established by the Government in 2016. Headed by the Chief Investigator, it is tasked with carrying out independent safety investigations across the healthcare system in England and has been operational since April 2017.
