Consultation opens on the revised Quality Standard for Imaging QSI

The consultation is open to all stakeholders until 9 April

Published: 18 March 2021 CoR

The College of Radiographersand the Royal College of Radiologists are seeking your comments and feedback on the revised 2021 standards.

QSI sets national quality criteria for imaging services in the UK, and it is the ambition of the colleges that QSI will be used globally to set an international standard for imaging service quality. The standard statements in the proposed new revision have been reframed as outcome standards. Outcomes, in the context of these standard statements describe in a meaningful way to the clinician delivering care, exactly what a high quality achievement of the standard means.

The open consultation is held by the Quality Review Service (QRS), which completed the revision on behalf of the colleges.

The consultation documents and FAQS can be accessed here. You can choose to comment on the whole standard or just the parts which are particularly relevant to you. A PDF of the standard can be downloaded or viewed from the website and if you are commenting on the standard on behalf of your organisation, there is also the option to download the questionnaire for reference.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to the consultation. If you have any questions, please contact: [email protected]
