Description

The National Health Services Quality Policy is geared towards an outcome oriented health sector
and provides a way to improve the quality of care in both the public and private sectors. The policy
outlines the objectives, strategies and governance requirements that will provide the foundation for
service planning, programmes, initiatives and activity aimed at ensuring the delivery of high quality
care.

This quality policy addresses our entire quality management system and the applicable
requirements, directives and associated standards. Therefore, institutions shall be accountable for
continuously improving the quality of their services and the maintenance of standards and high
levels of competence that allow excellence in clinical care to flourish.

Health professionals practicing within the system shall take responsibility for the standard of their
own practice, and the maintenance of a system that provides safe care. Healthcare organisations
shall identify and detail clear lines of responsibility and accountability for clinical care, and ensure
that they are communicated throughout the organisation.
