The College is supporting a Department of Health and NHS Information Centre survey of indicators that can be used to measure the quality of care delivered by clinicians.
Surgeons will be asked to comment on the effectiveness of the indicators which apply to their specialist area of surgery. They will also be asked to provide information about other indicators they may be using which are not on the list
The College is encouraging Fellows and Members to participate in the consultation which runs from the 11th November to the 12th December 2008.
The information provided by all surgeons will be made available to the College so we can use the outcomes to actively participate in the development of these national metrics as well as using them to inform our on-going work on revalidation.
Further information and details of the consultation can be found at:www.ic.nhs.uk/cqi
