QUALITY AND SAFETY
The quality and safety workstream carried out an organisational audit to provide a baseline picture of London’s hospital based neurological services. It encompassed the neuroscience/surgery regional centres, specialist neurological centres (no surgery), and acute general hospitals (AGH). Additional information was collected on community rehabilitation which will be the subject of a separate report.
The aim of the audit was to identify a set of standards for London commissioners that describe a fit for purpose modern acute neurological services and provide recommendations for the London Neuroscience Strategic Clinical Network workplan for improvement programmes.
