WHY GATEKEEPING DECISIONS ARE A GAMECHANGER

When two local areas come together, inevitably they notice how differently they each approach decision making around reviews. The decision to notify a serious incident is no exception.
If an incident hits the criteria & would elicit learning it should always progress to the next stage. However, where too many incidents come through you risk overwhelming the front end.

Decision makers approach their task with diligence & professionalism. As the system beds in, thresholds will become clearer all round. The National Panel has scheduled an away day to consider this.

In the mean time, you can:

1. Share data to assist partners with the numbers involved. Include case studies to differentiate types of case to support decision making.

2. Use your network, offering information to your peers which will help you to compare approaches.

3. There’s only 3 weeks left on our early bird offer for the SILP 10th Birthday Conference at Birmingham Botanical Gardens on Thursday 18th June 2020. Steph Brivio’s National Panel Update will cover this & other topics. This is your number one networking opportunity for 2020. A keypad on your table will allow you to engage with Steph’s questions anonymously & see how others approach this locally. Secure your funding now.
