Qual­ity shines through forstaff

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Marc McLean

Health work­ers across La­nark­shire have cel­e­brated suc­cess in im­prov­ing qual­ity and safety for pa­tients and staff.

A qual­ity week was held at the end of Novem­ber, and a cel­e­bra­tion event was at­tended by ap­prox­i­mately 150 NHS La­nark­shire em­ploy­ees.

The event fo­cused on 10 years of the Scot­tish pa­tient safety pro­gramme, re­al­is­tic medicine, re­duc­ing waste in health­care and joy in work.

Mar­jorie McGinty, in­terim di­rec­tor of qual­ity, said: “Qual­ity week was a great suc­cess.

“It pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for staff to share and learn from each other with short qual­ity im­prove­ment ses­sions on a va­ri­ety of top­ics car­ried out across hos­pi­tal and com­mu­nity set­tings for both health and so­cial care staff.

“There were also a range of learn­ing ses­sions held through­out the week on NHS La­nark­shire’s qual­ity strat­egy.

“Feed­back from staff has been pos­i­tive, with staff ap­pre­ci­at­ing the op­por­tu­nity to share their im­prove­ment work, learn from each other and build their net­works to con­tin­u­ously im­prove the qual­ity and safety of health and so­cial care for peo­ple.”
