Clinical Audit Awareness Week (23-27 November 2020) is a national annual campaign spearheaded by Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQUIP) and National Quality Improvement (including Clinical Audit) Network (NQI-CAN) to celebrate the impact of clinical audit and quality improvement work in health and social care.
The clinical audit team at GMMH will be in the spotlight this week as part of the national campaign to celebrate the role of clinical audit in improving patient care and services.
The team are dependent on the continued support provided by services by assisting with data collection requests for the local and national audit programme.
Clinical audit is a way to find out if health services are meeting local and national standards and targets. It lets care providers and patients know where their service is doing well, and where there could be improvements.
By making reliable data available, clinical audits help to improve the care our patients receive. They provide evidence to show when we are getting it right and help us to identify areas where we need to focus our improvement efforts.
Although they are not the most visible of all our employees, the clinical audit team provides a vital role which is why we are delighted to take part in Clinical Audit Awareness Week.
