Within our team, we monitor and disseminate updates to guidelines and standards produced by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence. Where relevant, services are asked to conduct baseline assessments, audits and evaluations to measure and plan for compliance with these documents.
‘Introduction to audit and evaluation’ training is available for teams on request and as part of the Academy of Research and Improvement training programme. A more interactive workshop on audit and evaluation is available where teams and individuals can develop their plans and ideas together. An online guide to conducting clinical audit or an evaluation is also available.
Each year, an audit plan is produced and updated for each service line. These are available on our intranet pages. Throughout the year, support is available to identify topics for audits and evaluations and the most suitable methods to use. If you would like to undertake a project, please:

We welcome ideas from those that use our services for improvement, evaluation or audit and can support anyone that would like to either be part of a project or even run one themselves. If you would like to know more or have an idea, contact the team.
