Homicide brief

Niche Health and Social Care Consulting are one of the primary providers of independent homicide investigations on behalf of NHSEngland (under the NHS Serious Incident Framework SiF, 2015). We have worked on multiple investigations and serious casereviews and have amassed a significant bank of primary research and unique insights.

This thematic review aims to provide our clients, commissioners and regulators with a useful analysis of the prevalent themes and key areas for learning from twenty three Niche homicide investigations both in terms of the investigation process itself and also thekey findings arising from investigation reports. All of the twenty three reports we have reviewed for this summary were investigationsundertaken between June 2010 and December 2016. The analysis relates specifically to homicides which have been committed bya person receiving care and treatment from NHS mental health services.

We hope that you will find this analysis useful in prompting debate and providing areas for scrutiny within your own care andtreatment protocols, compliance frameworks and assurance arrangements.
