Introducing Audit Oversight: the newest addition to our Suite of 20 integrated Oversight apps that will transform your Trust in weeks.
Audits are often viewed as time-consuming, box-checking annoyances by the NHS staff who must complete them. As a result of the lengthy processes required to complete audits, audit completion rates are often not where they should be – with a not-unusual 43% completion rate recently recorded at a major trust.
A better way to record, report and learn from incidents to improve patient safety and care.
Incident reporting is vital for healthcare providers to advance learning, improvements, and patient care. However, due to a lengthy, complex reporting process, minor incidents often go unreported, giving an inaccurate overview of adverse events. For more reliable data, better learning, and continuing to work towards delivering better standards of patient care, NHS England strongly encourages reporting of incidents, despite much of it being voluntary.
Exclusive access to the secret behind quick, easy and effective incident management and reporting
Incident reporting for healthcare providers is crucial to advance improvements and aid patient safety. As a result of lengthy, complex incident reporting processes, minor incidents aren’t being reported as often as they should. Although incident reporting is voluntary, NHS England encourages the reporting of events to continue working towards better standards of care for patients by avoiding recreating past mistakes that caused harm and inspiring change to outdated processes.

Our 6 ideas to help change minds of audit doubters
“Audits are paper-pushing check box exercises that consume valuable scarce resource pointless administration.”
“We do them because we have to do them.”
Two unsatisfying comments from stretched staff that feel more resource doing the work is more of a priority than resource auditing the work. Many of us in the safety, quality and improvement field have worked tirelessly to overcome these types of concerns and mindsets for longer than we care to admit!
How rising figures reveal the vital link between PAM and improved patient safety
While healthcare teams on the front lines have been working flat out to improve patient safety, new data has revealed that the very facilities in which they work have been hampering their efforts. New data has shown that crumbling and deteriorating NHS buildings, leaking roofs and faulty equipment have led to a 15 per cent jump in incidents affecting patient care in NHS hospitals, with thousands of patients being hit with delays and put at risk of harm by poor buildings and faulty equipment.
How are NHS Trusts are using technology to tackle the backlog
In over the summer of 2021, the CQC asked 73 trusts about their approaches to longer waiting lists and how they were considering people’s care in a “fair and equal way”. Their aim was to gauge Trusts’ assessments of the challenges, such as the suspension of some elective care caused by increased pressure on hospital capacity during the pandemic, and other challenges such as the need for more extensive infection and control measures, an increase in the number and intensity of cleaning procedures, the use of personal protective equipment, and enhanced testing.
