The Good Practice Scheme Practice Quality Statement
The practice self-assessment is based around a four point practice quality statement:
We involve our patients in all aspects of their care and ensure that their needs and preferences are considered and that they can take informed decisions.
We ensure a safe environment by undertaking risk assessments and managing potential hazards within the practice. We follow current guidelines for preventing cross-infection.
We recruit staff that are competent to undertake the duties associated with their role and provide training where required. We encourage ongoing professional development for all members of our team.
We monitor the quality of the service we provide and seek the views of our patients to identify opportunities for improvement.
For patients, this is a clear statement of what the Good Practice Scheme stands for. To find a practice that is a member of the Scheme, please visit BDA Smile
