Dear Health and Social Care Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority,

I run the Neurology Recall Support Group, and there seems to be some confusion regarding what is/what is not being investigated. I was hoping that you could help us clarify some points, so the information is as accurate and as consistent as possible.

1. Can you confirm the number of patients in the first cohort is 45?
2. Can you provide a copy of the terms of reference for the review?
3. Can you clarify if you are investigating the deaths of these patients, or just reviewing their medical records?
4. What authority/powers do you have when investigating deaths?
5. I was informed in May that you were working through a heavy amount of paperwork to remove the staples before digitising the records. Has the digitisation of paper records begun?
6. Have you managed to obtain Dr Watts medical records from his home?
7. Given the acknowledgment by the Trust of the errors surrounding their medical records, and the 9000+ patient review of Radiographer Aiden O'Briens work, why was the decision made to only look at the ECR system? Whilst the ECR system is the main system, I have raised concerns about the handling of this system to the DoH in 2019. Will you now include all of the systems that were used to capture data?
8. I have requested that the audit logs/trails are looked at to reduce errors and ensure efficiency, can you advise if this is going to be undertaken?

Thanking you in advance,

Yours faithfully,

Lyndsay Eccleston
