This online Learning Network provides members with information and support around Quality Improvement (QI), 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.
Members have access to useful resources and case studies as well as opportunities to share learning from their experiences and make useful links with others interested in QI.
Whether you have been undertaking QI work for a while or just want to find out more, this network can support you in your journey and connect you to colleagues across the country who are working in innovative ways.
Membership is open to people working in GP practices and other organisations that support them. Register now to become a member of the Learning Network.
This network has been developed as part of the Royal College of General Practice’s Quality Improvement programme, led by two Clinical Lead’s Dr Mike Holmes and Dr Simon Stockill. If you have any questions about the programme please get in touch with the team at QI.Ready@rcgp.org.uk.
RCGP RSS News FeedRCGP Wales says it's time to 'move the dial of the health service in favour of general practice', in line with previous statement from the new First Minister
Responding to the election of Mark Drakeford AM as the new First Minister for Wales, RCGP Wales has called on him to 'move the dial of the health service in favour of general practice'. The First Minister previously made this statement in the Welsh Assembly.
The College has said its recent 'Transforming general practice' report should form the basis of a "much-needed package of support for general practice".
Dr Peter Saul, Royal College of General Practitioners Wales Joint Chair, said:
"The new First Minister has previously spoken of the need to 'move the dial of the health service in favour of general practice'. We look forward to him setting a strong direction as First Minister to make this a reality.
"Last week the College published 'Transforming general practice: Building a profession fit for the future'. This report was informed by our member's experiences and presents a snapshot of general practice in 2018, shining a spotlight on high levels of stress, concern about the future, and worry about financial sustainability within the profession.
"We also made a number of recommendations, which should form the basis of a much-needed package of support for general practice. The College looks forward to working constructively with the First Minister and the Welsh Government to put general practice on a stable footing."
