Our focus on quality
The Quality and Patient Safety Teams work across Worcestershire to ensure that safe, effective and high quality health services are commissioned and delivered for our local populations.
Quality is at the heart of each of the CCG’s values and we make it a priority to maintain a focus on high quality care and patient outcomes. The needs of local people are at the centre of all that the CCG’s do and we work hard to ensure that we learn from patients and public experiences of care.
Mari Gay is the Director of Quality and Patient Safety for the CCG.
