Delivering High Quality Care

We aim to support members to become high reliability organisations, delivering high quality health and care services that reflect the needs of patients, service users and staff.

Through a wide range of offers we will support members across a variety of health and care settings to:

  • Tackle specific care and quality issues, e.g. reducing the use of physical restraint, patient harm or deterioration, or improving local waiting and access times
  • Use evidence, knowledge and understanding to enable continuous improvement, best practice and quality assurance
  • Support a culture for safety, focusing on human factors approaches and psychological safety to improve outcomes
  • Ensure a parity of esteem between mental and physical health within CAMHS services
