Transformation Quality Improvement

The Transformation Quality Improvement Unit (TQIU), formally known as Clinical Services, provides advice and support to BAD members with regards to the commissioning and provision of dermatology services in the UK

<p>Transformation Quality Improvement</p>

The BAD produces resources providing guidance on a wide range of service areas, to help support the organisation and delivery of dermatology services and ensure high standards of care. This work involves national stakeholders, such as the CQC, the APPGS on Skin, Medical Associations, the General Medical Council, the Department of Health, NHS England, NHS Digital, NHS Improvement, Local Councils, Healthwatch, Commissioners, and NHS Trusts.

Experience has taught us that often the solution to a problem is easier to find if we can help early in the process rather than when a crisis subsequently develops. It is also equally beneficial to hear from our members when things are going well, so we can share relevant advice with other members. A contact form is available at the bottom of this page, please rest assured that any issues of confidentiality will be respected.
