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 FeedShift on NHS surcharge for NHS and care workers 'common sense', says RCGP
Responding the Government's decision to exempt health and care workers from overseas from the NHS surcharge, Professor Martin Marshall, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said: "General practice, the wider NHS and care sectors rely on people from all over the world to deliver essential care to patients. This has never been more apparent that during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
“It made no sense that those delivering health and care services, currently putting their own health at risk by doing so, should be penalised for doing their crucial work. This shift in policy is common sense – but it is also symbolic in terms of giving the thousands of NHS and care staff from overseas the appreciation they deserve for the work they are doing.
"We welcome the Government’s recent policy change to exempt NHS and care workers from the NHS surcharge."
