Clinical Quality Advisory Board Report
Dr Ben Hudson, Chair
The Clinical Quality Advisory Board (CQAB) is a new group. Along with the newly formed Population Health Advisory Board, CQAB aims to continue and build on the work previously done by CPEC and the Clinical Board.
CQAB’s remit is wide: we aim to oversee any activity within Pegasus that involves the clinical care of patients, and to support and advise the Pegasus Board in achieving its mission to improve health through high performing teams and innovative community and primary healthcare. As such, our approach is to take both the big picture view, for example in promoting and supporting quality improvement; and also to provide a more focused response to specific questions and emerging governance issues.
CQAB held its first meeting on 14 June 2018 and has so far advised on matters relating to direct to consumer laboratory testing, Pegasus’ programmes such as smoking cessation and the development of Pegasus’ approach to clinical quality improvement.
CQAB looks forward to fulfilling this role. Its professionally broad-based and experienced membership places us in an excellent position to fulfill this wide-ranging role.
