Bereaved family members or someone who knew the person well can be in involved in the review if they want to. This is important and helpful to the review process.

Family of the person who died

Families often know the most about the care the person who died received. Their experience of services will influence high quality care and areas for improvement. This will also enhance our opportunity to learn; helping to improve services for other people

We will inform families when we are undertaking a review. We will invite them to contribute information about the person who died. We will also offer families:

  • an opportunity to comment on the draft review
  • a copy of the completed review

Family involvement

We understand that all families are different. So, we will talk to them to help them decide how much involvement they want in the LeDeR review. We will make sure our communication explains the purpose and limits of LeDeR reviews. We will explain how to raise your questions or concerns, including those outside of the LeDeR process.
