CQL meeting, SESP, thinking about next year’s Clinical Change forum and more.....

CQL meeting Thursday 14th December

Lots of stuff going in QI central this and last week. Very full pan Lothian CQL meeting on Thursday 14th December.  There is SO MUCH high quality improvement work going on in Lothian Primary Care.  Most common feedback was how useful the meeting was in terms of hearing what other teams are doing and learning from each other. The meeting was very much an ‘I love my job’ moment for me. And all the work priorities and ideas have been set and devised locally by clinicians, to reflect what is actually needed within practice. Brilliant. Thank you all.

All the projects mentioned during the course of the afternoon are stored in the members section of the Lothian Quality website https://qilothian.scot.nhs.uk/cql-member-section. Please email QInetwork@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk or lisa.carter@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk for the password to this area.

SESP 2018/19

Elouise is submitting this year’s SESP contract just now, for the 31st December PCCO deadline. In a nutshell, the 2018-19 SESP enables practices to submit bespoke Quality Improvement projects which reflect work needed at individual practice or cluster level. This is a progression from previous years, based on the cumulative QI learning from the Patient Safety Programme and the QI workbooks.

Clinical change forum

An opportunity for clusters to show case their improvement work to the wider NHS Lothian community, including exec and non exec board members, as well as building on what was achieved in last week’s CQL meeting in terms of exchange of practical ideas. We are looking at dates in March (prior to the next CQL meeting which will hopefully take place in April) where you decide what you want to present. There is a lot to show and be proud of.

And finally Merry Christmas and looking forward to working with you all in 2018!
