Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch 

Can you, a colleague or service in the #NHS participate in this investigation? 

โ˜„๏ธCommunity Services, Primary Care, Community Hospitals โ˜„๏ธ


 โ˜„๏ธSecondary Care, Tertiary Care thereafter if required. โ˜„๏ธ 

Nb: There is a lot of existing acute data in place, for comparison. 

#HSIB will undertake #four investigations that consider how working conditions in the #NHS can be optimised to support patient safety, while maintaining and improving staff wellbeing.

The #fourinvestigations are:

1) Workforce and patient safety: the digital environment โ€“ considering design of the digital aspects of the work system, such as computer systems, with which staff and patients interact.

2) Workforce and patient safety: prioritising patient care โ€“ considering how the ability of the clinical workforce to deliver face to face patient care is affected by undertaking additional tasks, for example administrative roles.

3) Workforce and patient safety: skill mix and staff integration โ€“ considering how existing and new roles are implemented as part of the wider multi-disciplinary team to support safe and compassionate patient care.

4) Workforce and patient safety: temporary staff โ€“ considering how temporary staff, including agency, bank and locum staff are supported to ensure they have the necessary skills, competencies and understanding to deliver safe patient care.

Our previous investigations have explored challenges faced by the workforce predominantly in the acute healthcare sector. 

The intelligence reviewed in support of these investigations highlights the need to broaden out to other sectors.

The #investigations: on 

โœ”๏ธthe digital environment, 

โœ”๏ธprioritising patient care and 

โœ”๏ธskill mix will begin their focus in 

โžก๏ธprimary care (for example general practice) and 

โžก๏ธcommunity services (for example care delivered at home, 

โžก๏ธin community hospitals, intermediate care facilities, clinics and schools). 

The scope of the investigations may extend to secondary care (care in hospitals either as an emergency or for planned care) and tertiary care (highly specialised treatment) as the evidence is gathered. 

The temporary staff investigation will start with a focus on secondary care.

The four investigations will include conversations with relevant integrated care boards and integrated care partnerships within the integrated care systems, to maximise opportunities for learning.

Carrying out the investigations

The investigations will gather evidence from a broad range of healthcare organisations across England.

We are keen to collect a diverse range of views that may also contribute to evidence of where inequalities exist for patients and the workforce. 

As part of the evidence collection, we intend to undertake observations with multidisciplinary teams and carry out focus groups and interviews with NHS staff, patients and the public.

We want to understand how learning can be used to enhance NHS staff wellbeing, as well as patient safety.

We are also looking for exemplars of good practice.


Each individual investigation will produce an HSIB investigation report that may make safety recommendations, safety observations or identify local learning to inform improvements in support of patient safety and staff wellbeing.

The findings from all four investigations, and additional HSIB intelligence, may then contribute to a future national learning report. 

This would allow for common themes or issues seen across the investigations to be aggregated and further safety recommendations, safety observations or local learning to be identified.


If you would like to speak to us about these areas of investigation, would be willing to support observational visits by the investigation team, or wish to share any information with us about a specific investigation prior to publication, 

please email:
