Our approach to investigating

Reference: INV-1

Last Updated 28/07/2017


Our investigation will seek to understand the full extent of the regulatory concerns and establish the facts by undertaking reasonable lines of enquiry. The factual issues, both individually and collectively, will be assessed to determine the seriousness of the concerns and what the evidence says about what happened. This, alongside any response the nurse or midwife sends during the early phases of the investigation will inform our decisions on what, if any, further investigation we need to do. Further information about what we consider to be regulatory concerns can be found in our guidance.
