Monitor’s Medical Advisory Group advises our board on its strategy for improving the quality of care provided by NHS foundation trusts.
In particular, the group helps to identify and prioritise opportunities to support NHS foundation trusts to manage quality effectively. For example, the group advises the board on developing quality management tools, best practice guidance and training materials.
The group considers how Monitor can deliver its quality strategy:
- by using its regulatory levers, including the compliance and reporting regime
- through its development programme for NHS foundation trusts
- by influencing the development of the healthcare system
The group is made up of foundation trust medical directors.
