PERFORMANCE: Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust reported five serious untoward incidents to its commissioners in April – including one unexpected death, a fire and the destruction of health records.

The trust will now investigate each of the incidents. It is trying to ensure that 80 per cent of investigations are completed within 45 days by the end of October, and is monitoring progress towards this target.

A monthly report on SUIs opened, progress on others and any inquests will now be considered by trust committees.
