About the workstream

The quality workstream has 8 specialty Quality Management Groups (sQMGs)

 



The Quality Workstream has 8 specialty Quality Management Groups (sQMGs) that are responsible for the governance around data and intelligence management including the management of Quality Management-Quality Improvement (QM-QI) visits for the specialties within their scope.

The membership of each sQMGs consist of a Lead Dean Director (LDD) (who chairs the group), at least one Associate Postgraduate Dean - Quality Lead (APGDQL), at least one Quality Improvement Manager (QIM) and at least one Quality Improvement Administrator (QIA).

Other members include Associate Postgraduate Deans for specialties who bring intelligence around training issues in their specialties to the sQMGs, representatives of the Foundation and the General Practice-Occupational Medicine-Public Health Medicine sQMGs (where appropriate) as well as lay and Royal College representation.

SQMGs meet every 2 months, and each reports on its activities to the overarching Deanery Quality Management Group (DQMG) via a SQMG highlights report. 

SQMGs have 4 core functions that support their LDDs to effect their quality management responsibilities for their specialty groupings:
