What is a deep dive?
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?
