Expert Review of Records of Patients of Dr Watt who died 2008-18
The first preparatory stage of this Review is complete, during which we worked with various stakeholders to finalise a Legal Framework which would allow RQIA to access the records of deceased patients of Dr Watt. Following receipt of all signed copies of the Legal Framework, it was deemed effective from the 27th November 2020. RQIA is now finalising plans for the next stage of the review including putting in place all the necessary arrangements for the safe management of records, plans for communication with the public and relatives, and identifying experts to review records.
Further updates will be published here in due course.
