Why do a Quality Improvement Project?

South Eastern HSC Trust is committed to increasing the focus on

improving health and social care in order to ensure improved safety,

higher quality and improved experience for both staff and service

users.

There is considerable national and international evidence that better

quality, safer care is more efficient and delivers benefits1. Harm

events currently cost the NHS about £1 billion annually. That is the

cost of keeping people in hospital beds - including intensive and

critical care beds - longer than necessary as a result of a harmful

event.

Investing in quality and safety has the benefits of improving

outcomes and experience whilst also producing better value for

money and releasing other resources.

actually cost less"

'Everyone has two jobs - to do the job they were

appointed to do and to improve that job. This is the

essence of quality improvement (QI)'
