Showcasing your quality work, the Primary Care Team and who not to ask for help in a pub quiz......

Practice Managers’ Quality Improvement Workshop

Our bit of the Lothian Quality website is called ‘Primary Care Network’ for a very good reason. It is a network for all professionals who work in Primary Care. We are therefore really delighted to be hosting a Quality Improvement workshop for Lothian practice managers, provisional date Thursday 8th March 2018. The training delivered will look completely different to previous training workshops, and will be very much tailored to the specific needs of the practice management team. If you haven’t heard about it yet, and would like to come please email elouise.johnstone@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk

Practice nursing teams

Elouise, Adeline and Jacqui Pringle delivered a training workshop on QI methodology for the East Lothian Practice nurses in March 2017, focussing on operational definitions of measurement. Lisa has presented on the QI network to the South West Edinburgh locality Practice Nurses group towards the end of last year. We are keen to do more. Please email lisa.carter@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk if you would like more info.

March 2018 clinical change forum

We will firm up a date for this next week. We are really keen that as many people as time allows present their quality work. Adeline and Elouise will be in touch next week.

That’s it for now. Email us if you have a question, need some help or have some feedback. Needs to be quality related. We are no good for ‘phone a friend’ from a pub quiz....

Best wishes and THANK YOU for doing all the work that you do and of course for clicking on the website J
