Quality during the Covid-19 pandemic


Position statement for second and subsequent Covid-19 surges 

HEE will deliver its core quality function during the next Covid-19 surge (and compounding winter pressures) and subsequent surges, by taking forward the lessons learned during the first wave, developing and building on the innovative approaches to quality.  This will be done with strict adherence to local and national COVID-19 rules, policies and in agreement with system partners. Further detailed guidance is being created for local and regional teams to ensure consistency and promote best practice while recognising the need for local flexibility and decision-making.  

The core principles set out in the initial surge will remain in place and set out HEEs expectations during this and subsequent surges to ensure learner and patient safety. Further details can be found in our position statement, updated in January 2021.

Our Quality Strategy and Quality Framework, which underpins our approach can be found here. Please note these documents are currently under review, with updated versions due to be published in 2021.
