NCEPOD

National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death. A registered UK charity which performs investigations to determine if a patient’s death was inevitable (i.e., unpreventable), and makes recommendations based on the findings of the studies it undertakes. In addition to the evidence gathered in its reports, NCEPOD considers evidence already available before agreeing within the organisation which recommendations to promote.
