Quality Management

Welcome to the Quality pages for Severn Postgraduate Medical Education.

Health Education England (HEE), working across the south west, comprises one quality function with offices in both Bristol and Plymouth, each with responsibility for their respective geographical region. We work closely together in order to ensure a coordinated approach to managing quality utilising the HEE Quality Framework.

We have developed harmonised quality management systems and processes to ensure that trainee doctors are provided with the most supportive training experience throughout their programmes, following General Medical Council standards as our regulator. By working with our stakeholders in Trusts and Schools, we aim to ensure the highest quality training possible by focusing on managing risks and the promotion of good practice.

The following web-pages detail our Framework for managing quality as well as the main quality processes we employ in order to achieve the highest standards possible.

In order to ensure that we are managing all these activities fairly and impartially we also have a Quality Board with external stakeholders who monitor our work on a six monthly basis.
