What is a deep dive?

July 2016

This guidance has been produced to support the undertaking of deep dives within NHS organisations. It seeks to explain:

• What is the purpose of a deep dive?

• What triggers a deep dive?

• Who should be involved in a deep dive?

• What would justify a non executive director (NED) engagement?

• What does assurance would look like?

• How to exit with confidence that the issue is now resolved but that should it reappear it will be identified to the board promptly?
