Quality Profiles

Thanks to the King’s Fund newsletter for bringing this rather nice website from NHS Midlands and East Quality Observatory to my attention. They provide summary PDFs giving a range of quality indicators for general practices and clinical commissioning groups. The layout interests me as it is clear, engaging and above all concise!

The devil is in the detail, as anyone who has worked with quality indicators will know (this particular surgery seems to have 90% of its patients attend A&E regularly, on average everybody goes 1.4 times a year – what is there to do in Worksop that is so dangerous?) but this is a good output at the other end of the conveyor belt.
