Developing a Quality Framework for Scottish General Practice
Developing a Quality Framework for General Practice in Scotland
This report is the outcome of a joint project between the Royal College of General Practitioners (Scotland) and Healthcare Improvement Scotland and sets out a framework for improving quality of care in Scottish General Practice.
It is available in two formats, a printable version and a version that allows the diagrams to be interactive. The document is not an exhaustive list of all current quality activities but does give an indication of the breadth and number of activities.
The document is for use for those who work strategic level and it will help to identify those activities that are currently in place. It is not for use by practices, but one of the recommendations is that a resource be developed to aid practices at a time when they are facing numerous challenges and demands.
It is hoped that the responsible bodies identified in the framework will be able to take forward the recommendations and the working group will review this within the next 12 months.
The framework had been recognised by Martin Marshall, Professor of Health Improvement, UCL as 'the best strategic document supporting the development of general practice that I've come across in my national and international work'.
