Who is this programme for?

Access QI is for:

  • clinicians and managers in NHS boards who deliver planned care services, and
  • QI practitioners and data analysts that work with planned care services to improve waiting times.

 

How can you get involved?

All NHS boards can access our tools and resources and QI guides on the QI Zone.

All NHS boards can join the national learning system to share innovations from elective care services both across Scotland and internationally as they remobilise and establish new ways of working to deliver high quality care. We would like to ask you to share you innovations by completing this form and emailing us at his.accessqi@nhs.scot

You can keep up to date with our work as we publish new resources through our updates page which is regularly updated with news from across the programme.
