Quality Improvement Activity

Add to favourites

NES was advised by the CDO in January 2021, that the NES Portal should be closed to all further QI project applications for the 2019/2022 QI cycle. The new QI cycle started on the 1st August 2022 but Scottish Government have not as yet advised on the arrangements and requirements for the 2022/2025 cycle. Accordingly, no applications are currently possible.

The exception to this is for those dentists whose Health Board have required them to make up a shortfall in their hours for the 2016/2019 QI cycle. NES will only be able to process projects received from individuals whose Health Board have advised NES that they fall into this category. Any queries about shortfalls for 2016/2019 and on catch-up should be directed to your local Health Board.

The other exception is for those dentists who are working as assistants and who are intending to submit evidence of QI Activity to SDVTECC, when applying for a VT number by equivalence. If you are an assistant and are therefore required to undertake QI Activity, please email us at QI.Hub@nes.scot.nhs.uk to advise us of this BEFORE submitting your audit project proposal or your eSEA report(s). 

Practices may continue to use QI tools such as eSEA and clinical audit, in house, to support good practice or comply with regulations such as keeping an up to date Radiation Protection File.
