One of the findings of the report was that, as an organisation, NHS Tayside was not open to learning from adverse experiences, and staff reported a “blame culture”.

Organisational development is vital. NHS Tayside is already taking steps to better engage with staff, and with service users and their families.

The package of measures that I announced in January, and the work that is being done between NHS Tayside, Healthcare Improvement Scotland, NES and the Royal College of Psychiatrists, along with the oversight work of the new quality and safety board, will support that.
