QPS TalkTime


The National QPS Directorate provides a regular lunch time one hour webinar series focusing on quality safety and improvement. Running approximately every two weeks (in term time). It is open to all those interested in improving quality and patient safety across our healthcare services. Join individually or together as a group to assist in building your own local QPS networks. 

The webinars aim to:

  • connect people interested in QPS
  • share learning and experiences of improvement.

We are planning an exciting line-up for Spring/Summer 2023 series, with a mixture of local, national and international speakers. The webinars are facilitated by the National Quality and Patient Safety Directorate with guests. We hope you can join us.
