Topic engagement

Tell us about the 5 key areas for quality improvement which you consider as having the greatest potential to improve the quality of care in this area.

Closing date for comments: Tuesday 27 July 2021 at 5pm

Please note that this is a repeat of the topic engagement exercise held 02 March to 03 April 2020. Work on the quality standard was paused due to the pandemic but has now restarted. Engagement is being repeated because of the length of time that has passed. If your organisation commented previously, you do not need to resubmit your comments. However, you are welcome to submit new comments to replace those previously submitted if you wish.
