Expert Review of the Clinical Records of all Patients or Former Patients of Dr Watt who are Deceased

In 2018, the Department of Health commissioned RQIA to undertake a review of the case notes of former patients of Dr Watt who had died during the previous 10 years.  This Review is complex and is expected to take a number of years to complete.

The first stage of this Review is underway and focuses on identifying the numbers and details of patients who are deceased, and sourcing the records to be reviewed.   Our team is currently meeting with staff from a range of health and social care organisations and the independent sector to progress this work.  We are also finalising our arrangements to ensure these patient records are dealt with in line with legal requirements.

If you would like to contact us about this Review please talk to Lorna Bates, Senior Administrator at RQIA, in the first instance, by telephoning 028 9536 1828 or emailing lorna.bates@rqia.org.uk
