NHS England and NHS Improvement seeks patients and carers to work with the Quality Surveillance Team

Dec 4, 2019

A message from  NHS England & NHS Improvement:

Did you know that you, as a patient or carer, you can join a team who work to help maintain and improve congenital gynae anomalies services in our hospitals?  

NHS England and NHS Improvement is calling for patients and carers who have used congenital gynae anomalies services to join the peer review programme along with clinicians, nurses, psychologists, other health care professionals and managers to ensure high quality care is being delivered and to accelerate the spread of good practice across the NHS.   This would entail the following:

  • Attend a half day training event
  • Half day preparation before the review visit (reading documents)
  • Undertake at least one peer review visit at a hospital site in which you or your family member did not receive care 
  • Visit day usually 8:45 am start and finish at 4:00 pm 
  • Approximately one and a half hours post visit to check accuracy of report electronically via email. 

All reasonable travel and carers support costs to attend the training day and peer review visits can be reclaimed or train tickets can be booked through the Review Support Team, in advance, if necessary.  Overnight accommodation can also be booked and paid for by the Quality Surveillance Programme in advance of the review visit, if travelling distances permits. Service users are also eligible to claim an honorarium payment of £150.00 for attending a peer review visit. 

 

If you think this is for you then please complete the application form and we will be in contact to arrange for you to attend one of our training sessions. By attending the training event, this will enable you to make an informed decision as to whether to continue with the process to become a reviewer; it does not commit you to further involvement.  In the meantime, if you require further information please do not hesitate to contact lisacunnington@nhs.net or England.qstreviewsupport@nhs.net
