Scotland hails quality in patient care

Scotland’s quality agenda is making exciting progress, Derek Feeley, acting chief executive of NHS Scotland, told a crowded Quality in Action event in Glasgow on 23 August.

Nicola Sturgeon, cabinet secretary for health and well-being, highlighted better waiting times, improved patient safety, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.

More than 1,000 health workers attended the two-day (23-24 August) event at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. It was billed as a first gathering of a ‘quality alliance’ —everyone who has a stake in delivering consistently high-quality health services. The programme focused on ambitions for safe, effective and person-centred healthcare.

Visiting the CSP’s stall, Mr Feeley welcomed the work being done by physiotherapists across a range of conditions and patient groups.

Health professionals came by to pick up ‘Physiotherapy works’ information covering their specific services.

‘The NHS Scotland event gives us a useful opportunity to profile the contribution of physiotherapy,’ said Kenryck Lloyd-Jones, CSP policy officer for Scotland. ‘The theme of quality in patient care fits in well with our ‘Physiotherapy works’ information.’
