BVRA logo

Date: Saturday 1st October 2022

Opening times: 13:30-14:30

Venue: Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Watling Street, Hinckley, LE10 3JA


Receptionists can add value to Quality Improvement (QI) activities by measuring client service, patient care and outcomes. Using clinical audit, the team can make vital contributions to the practice's Quality Improvement plan, and should always be included in QI meetings. This session will discuss the value of the whole team discussing events that did not go to plan, and how the entire team can learn from these events. The presentation will cover why it's important to have a team approach, and how checklists can be a receptionist's best friend.
