Quality Improvement (QI) is an evidence-based approach that helps primary care free up time to deliver and evaluate initiatives, and embed new approaches more effectively and efficiently into practice. QI helps us to make the most of our systems, organisations, talents and expertise to deliver better outcomes for patients. Read more.

QI Ready is a free resource for all practices and has been developed to support GPs and practice teams with QI activities in practices. It is your starting place for all QI tools, guidance and case studies.

OVID-19 Resource HubCOVID-19 Resource Hub: Our free COVID-19 Resource Hub has a growing range of practical tools and guidance for GPs. It brings together the latest RCGP resources, created by expert clinicians working alongside you to manage the outbreak. And there are links to external guidance on the current situation and managing specific patient groups, so all the information you need is in one place.

Recently added resources include a new 15-minute RCGP module for members of the primary care team, Managing Patients with Chronic Respiratory Symptoms During a Pandemic. We’ve also included guidance for those caring for patients with palliative needs around COVID-19, and their carers. You can get advice on effective systems for triage and online or video consultation. And our Top 10 Tips on what to do in primary care are also regularly being updated.

The Top Tips for using QI Ready includes information about using the learning network and offers a brief introduction to the quick guides, case studies, resources and discussions that the network contains. You can also watch our video which introduces QI Ready.

Our QOF QI Hub contains useful resources and case studies which provide examples of how practices could approach their quality improvement activity to achieve the QI domain of the Quality and Outcomes Framework.

We are continually adding new content to the learning network. Access the latest QI guidance and resources, case studies, blog posts and discussions.
