You may be aware that a NICE quality standard on Physical activity: encouraging activity in all people in contact with the NHS is currently being developed. A NICE quality standard is a concise set of prioritised statements designed to drive measurable, quality improvements within a particular area of health or care.
Today we have published the topic overview and core element description for this quality standard, on the NICE website. We are inviting submissions from registered stakeholders identifying which areas for quality improvement may have the greatest potential to improve the quality of care for this area.
In support of suggestions for quality improvement, stakeholders are asked to provide any supporting evidence or information that care in the suggested key areas for quality improvement is poor or variable and requires improvement. This information will be considered by the Quality Standards Advisory Committee (QSAC) who will agree which areas should be developed for the quality standard. Please note, this is not a consultation on the draft quality standard; there will be a consultation on the draft quality standard on 31st July 2014.
Please visit the following page to view the topic overview for Physical activity: encouraging activity in all people in contact with the NHS and download a comments pro-forma:
This engagement exercise will run from 1st April until 15th April 2014 at 5pm.
