Before you make an application, all clinical audit and quality improvement applications must be discussed with your clinical director/quality improvement lead or clinical audit manager. 

Projects should meet the following criteria:

  • Meet an identified priority, e.g. SAI, HSC priorities,specified by DoH NI or Chief Medical Officer
  • Where applicable, evidence-based standards must be identified, e.g. NICE, Royal colleges, KPI, service frameworks
  • Ability to provide evidence of a support network e.g. buy-in from the HSC trust's executive management team (EMT) or relevant professional forums.
  • Have a multi-skilled project team
