Developing Regional Quality Assurance Capacity Project

This project was initiated in response to one of the key common themes arising from the 2018-19 cycle of Triad Peer Challenges.

We seek to improve the effectiveness of existing quality assurance activities and ensure they help members, directors and management teams answer the “how do we know about the quality of our services” question.

The Developing Regional Quality Assurance Capacity Project  will support our joint working on improving quality assurance capacity and capability.

A network of Quality Assurance Lead Officers has been established and meets four times a year.  The group has developed a proposal  for Common Components of a Quality Assurance Framework which aims to develop and share 'good quality assurance practice' and improve consistency across the region.

This project is sponsored by Stuart Ashley on behalf of Steve Crocker, DCS Hampshire and IoW.
