NES has been advised by the CDO, that the NES Portal should be closed to all further QI project applications for the 2019/2022 QI cycle. Accordingly, no applications are currently possible. He has however advised, that the exception to this is for those dentists whose Health Board require them to make up a shortfall in their hours for the 2016/2019 QI cycle. NES will only be able to process projects received by individuals from this group. Any queries about shortfalls for 2016/2019 and on catch-up should be directed to your local Health Board.
Practices may continue to use QI tools such as eSEA and audit in house to support good practice or comply with regulations such as keeping an up to date Radiation Protection File.
