The Trust Board has made a full commitment to the principles of Being Open and the standards described in the National Patient Safety Agency's Being Open Framework 2009. www.nrls.npsa.nhs.uk
The Trust has always been committed to Being Open in all its practices and relationships with patients. This commitment to the Being Open initiative takes us to a new level of practical action, bringing these values and standards to the heart of all that we do. Being Open is a key part of patient safety as it provides a framework for being open and honest with patients and their families if things go wrong.
Here is our Being Open policy.
