Trust spokesman said: “This is a large com­plex or­gan­i­sa­tion de­liv­er­ing care across a wide range of spe­cial­ist ser­vices. We en­cour­age a strong re­port­ing cul­ture and our in­ci­dent re­port­ing rate re­flects a com­mit­ment to learn­ing from in­ci­dents, with over 99 per cent of in­ci­dents re­ported be­ing low or no harm. The events re­ported have been in­ves­ti­gated and the learn­ing used to de­velop our safety pro­grammes. We con­tinue to learn from th­ese events and any near misses that oc­cur.”

A spokesman for Tame­side and Glos­sop In­te­grated Care NHS Foun­da­tion Trust said: “Since a change of lead­er­ship at the trust in 2013 and an im­prove­ment pro­gramme, pa­tient safety has been at the fore­front of the trust’s ob­jec­tives. We are, and re­main, com­mit­ted to the Signed Up To Safety ini­tia­tive. The trust has in place a com­pre­hen­sive pa­tient safety pro­gramme, led by the med­i­cal di­rec­tor. The re­sults pub­lished are tes­ta­ment to the work un­der­taken by the staff in con­tin­u­ously pur­su­ing pa­tient safety.”
