The Citizens’ Partnership will help to build and maintain public understanding and confidence in our healthcare safety investigations. It will ensure the public perspective is embedded in everything we do and add value to investigations from inception to completion.
We have appointed Patrick Vernon OBE as Chair of the Citizens’ Partnership following an open recruitment process. Patrick and HSIB staff worked with a design and delivery group to advise on the remit of the Citizens’ Partnership. An open recruitment process was held in July and appointed five members to the Citizens’ Partnership.
