NHS Health Check Programme Standards: A framework for quality improvement
- NHS Health Check competence framework - July 2020
- NHS Health Check programme standards - July 2020
- NHS Health Check best practice guidance - October 2019 (updated March 2020)
Oxfordshire County Council has developed and implemented a Quality Assurance Audit Tool* and audit process to assess the quality of local NHS Health Check delivery against the PHE NHS Health Check Programme Standards 2014/15.
The Oxfordshire QA Tool was used during visits to participating GP providers of the NHS Health Check programme between October 2014 and March 2015. Concurrently, the council performed a Read Code data extraction from providers to assess the quality of data recording against the programme standards. Results were compiled in a dashboard* and used to inform feedback.
The council concluded that the process was acceptable to providers ,was effective in identifying strengths and weaknesses in local delivery and has been used to inform next steps. The process, tools and results have been shared here for Local Authorities to use as a reference point and example of local good practice.
*Please note these tools were created before the amendments to the programme standards in 2020
If you have any local examples you would like to add to this page, please contact the NHS Health Check team.
