What is Quality in Care Oncology?

Quality in Care (QiC) Oncology is an annual programme that recognises, rewards and shares good practice in cancer prevention, diagnosis & testing, treatment pathways and patient support throughout the UK.

The programme has the endorsement, support and active participation of a number of key stakeholders.

Gaining QiC recognition means an initiative has been highlighted by the NHS, patients and industry as improving patient outcomes and standards of care in oncology.

What people think of QiC Oncology?

“QiC Oncology provides an effective means of celebrating, and learning from, new ways of working which will help drive up the quality of care.  I am impressed and inspired by the quality and breadth of the award winners and finalists.  It demonstrated to me how those involved in day-to-day care of patients go even further to make real meaningful improvements in patients’ experiences.”
Professor Sean Duffy, National Clinical Director for Cancer NHS England (March 2013 – April 2016)

“In the current healthcare environment which is challenged by targets, performance and resources, it was hugely rewarding to once again review so many outstanding submissions for the 2016 QiC Oncology awards. Teams and individuals in the NHS continue to display selfless commitment to patient centered care, excellence in service development and new ways of working. In the last few years in the NHS we have accepted the need for widespread systemic change, in order to deliver continuous improvement. Every year I and the other judges see fantastic examples of this much needed change, which is perhaps not recognised enough. This is a continuing opportunity to showcase the very best in the NHS.”
Dr David Dunlop, Chair of Judges, Chief of Medicine, Regional Services, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
