The Department supports steps towards a just, learning culture that will support patient safety and benefit healthcare professionals, patients and their families.

We welcomed Leslie Hamilton’s ‘Independent review of gross negligence manslaughter and culpable homicide’ and are committed to bringing forward the recommendations from Sir Norman Williams’ Review into Gross Negligence Manslaughter, which was published in 2018.

We are planning to consult on these legislative changes, which are being developed as part of our reforms to professional regulation, later this year.
