Summary

Quality is at the heart of the government's strategy for NHS development, and which is to be delivered through clinical governance. This book explores accreditation through practical case studies and research findings, and outlines how it can assure the quality of care. Systems of accreditation for measuring and improving quality are described, and show how they can be used easily and effectively to meet the challenges of the new NHS. It is clear, concise and relevant to all the current changes in healthcare provision. All those responsible for delivering a service based on clinical and cost effectiveness will find it essential reading. 'In the United Kingdom primary health care is based almost wholly on general practice. From April 1999 all general practices will belong to primary care groups. Questions of quality and accountability will be high on their agenda as part of the new arrangements for clinical governance. This book on accreditation in primary care is therefore most timely.' Sir Donald Irvine, President, General Medical Council, in the Introduction
