Risk And Governance Documents
This describes how the Network identifies, manages and controls risks across the Network
This document describes the process to enable incidents and mortalities to be discussed at the Network Clinical Governance meeting to be held twice a year. Providers are required to complete a clinical governance report as part of this process.
This is a standardised mortality reporting form to be used by all providers within our Network. This can be used locally for M&M reporting within individual Trusts for patients. This form is to be used to report all deaths where a diagnosis of congenital heart disease is relevant.
Please use this form to submit incidents to the Network for consideration for discussion at the Network Clinical Governance meeting.
Please send reporting forms to the Network securely. Please be careful to ensure you follow data protection rules when sending confidential emails. The Alder Hey email address is accredited to DCB1596 standards: firstname.lastname@example.org
