Guides to monitoring quality during transition published

A series of “How to” guides to assist current NHS organisations, and their supervisory and regulatory bodies, to respond to quality risks and failures within a simple and single framework during this transition year has been produced.

Three guides, published today by the National Quality Board, are part of a series that will:

  • assist the current supervisory structures to maintain a focus on quality surveillance and assurance
  • provide the tools to assist in interventions and support to mitigate service quality failures during 2012/13.

How to: organise and run a rapid responsive review is a practical guide to help prepare for and organise a day long systematic visit to a NHS organisation where quality indicators are beginning to cause concern.

How to: quality impact assess provider cost improvement plans will allow a trust board and the supervisory and regulatory bodies to make a quality impact assessment of proposed cost improvement plans with the focus on clinical input and the potential impact on patients and staff.

How to: organise and run a risk summit will aid the supervisory and regulatory bodies in the effective communication and coordination between all stakeholders to respond in a coordinated way in the face of potential service failing in patient care during this transition year.

Chief executives and medical and nurse directors will wish to review How to: quality impact assess provider cost improvement plans and take action as appropriate.
