Other Projects


All Wales Handover Audit & Quality Improvement Project

Following successful completion of an all Wales audit into handover practices and adherence to RCS guidelines, which WON the ASiT Conference prize for Best Collaborative Project, we are now proceeding with plans to take our findings and implement an 'All Wales Surgical Handover Proforma' to improve quality across all hospitals.

If you would like to be involved with this Quality Improvement project get in touch!


Going Forward

Make sure you come to our AGM and Project roadshow in September 2016 to get involved with great collaborative projects and to see all the different ways the Welsh Barbers can help you and your training.

Make sure you join the forum group to catch any announcements!.
