The Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership Trust (AWP) has been deemed as a ’cause for significant concern’ in the recently published Learning from Mistakes league table.

The service provider was ranked 164 out of 230 in the list, which identifies levels of openness and transparencies within trusts and foundations.

It has come following the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) recent unannounced inspection of the service, which noted that “significant improvements” were needed to the mental health care provider.

The league table – published by the Department of Health – presents data compiled from the 2015 NHS staff survey and the National Reporting and Learning System.

It scores providers based on their fairness and effectiveness of procedures for reporting errors; near misses and incidents; staff confidence and security in reporting unsafe clinical practice; and the percentage of staff who feel able to contribute towards improvements at their trust.

AWP is one of 78 providers that have been given the ’cause for significant concern’ rating, alongside the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and the North Bristol NHS Trust.

18 providers were ranked as outstanding, 102 as good and 32 had a poor reporting culture.
