Integrated Medical Specialities


The adjacent links are part of Country Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust's (CDDFT) Local Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures (LocSIPPs) for Integrated Medical Specialities

All checklists presented have been developed by specialists within the associated procedural areas with coordination and support being provided by the LocSSIP Implementation and Governance Group. They are intended to be used by trained healthcare professionals undertaking the specific procedures and should not be used in the absence of the appropriate team training.

NHS England encourages sharing of locally developed Safety Standards and in order to engage fully with the 'spirit of LocSSIP', CDDFT has constructed this publically accessible webpage to facilitate access and to help support others in their endeavours to introduce similar standards. Please note that this page will change regularly as amendments take place and additional resources are added.

We would be grateful if healthcare establishment wishing to use or amend these files first contact me, Richard Hixson, CDDFT LocSSIP Lead on the email address below in order to request permission. Please state which LocSSIPs you are interested in and I will thereafter forward the editable Word document.
