The South West Quality Panels are an annual review of the quality of all posts/locations.

 

Quality Panels explore an education and training programme across a specific geographical area.

They enable us to recognise a department’s commitment to education.

Where appropriate, they provide us with evidence when support or action is required to raise the standard of a post to HEE and regulatory requirements.

 

Why 

To explore education and training across a specific geographical area: 

  • Emphasising the importance and promoting the development of a quality learning environment for all learners. 

  • Supporting the implementation and delivery of the HEE Quality Framework across all placements. 

 

Quality Panels enable us to recognise a department’s commitment to education (excellent and good), and to promulgate best practice.  

 

Where appropriate, they provide us with evidence where support or action is required to raise the standard of a post to HEE and regulatory requirements (gradings of Requires Improvement and Inadequate). 

What 

Virtual ‘focus group’ meetings with learners, unless there is good reason for them to take place face to face. 

Where 

They may be hosted by relevant Organisations/Trusts, or they may be region wide, dependent on the distribution of learners.  

Who 

Small team with clinical input: Facilitator, Programme Leads, and Learners. 

Outcome 

Understanding of common concerns across multiple locations and where there are location-specific issues; allows comparison of quality across the local office patch.
