Openness in the NHS: What can routine data tell us?

Following the Francis report of 2013, the NHS in England introduced a range of policy measures aimed at fostering greater openness about quality and safety. This talk described part of an evaluation of the implementation of these policies in NHS organisations. Specifically, it looked at what changes occurred in results from surveys of NHS staff and patients over a 12-year period (2006-2017), and considered what this (along with other aspects of the evaluation) tells us about actual changes in NHS culture around openness and transparency during this period.
