Clinical Standards

The Clinical Standards Unit was set up to provide dedicated support to the work of the Therapy & Guidelines and Health Informatics sub-committees.

The unit deals with all matters pertaining to clinical guidelines, clinical audits, information for patients, health informatics and other related areas.

Please forward any queries regarding:

Whilst the BAD is always happy to try to help with members' concerns, the BAD Clinical Standards Unit cannot advise about the management of individual patient cases. In situations where members require clinical advice, the normal route is to ask their local experts. If such advice is not available, then the unit and BAD officers may be able to suggest other clinicians with particular expertise.
