Driving Quality and Innovation with Compassion

What is Quality Improvement?

In early 2020 a group of like minded healthcare workers with a passion for improving quality within our Oncology and Haematology service areas established a working group to look at how we achieve quality improvement within Cancer Services.

Quality Improvement is often described as “a systematic approach that uses specific techniques to improve quality” (Health Foundation, 2013) and within Greater Glasgow and Clyde we widely recognise and promote the Model for Improvement as a means of achieving continuous improvement.
