Safe Surgeries QI project for GP trainees

GP trainees (ST3) have the option of completing a ‘Quality Improvement Project’ (QIP) as part of their training. This is a great chance to make meaningful improvements in their training practices, to gather valuable data and to develop their own skills and knowledge in inclusion health.

The Safe Surgeries QIP resources support GP trainees to make their practice a Safe Surgery by training their colleagues on best practice in inclusive patient registration and assessing changes in policy and staff attitudes and knowledge over time.

The resources were designed in line with the Royal College of GPs’ QIP guidance.
