Abstract

NHS England monitors the quality of all specialised commissioned and cancer services in England. The Quality Surveillance Team (QST), as part of the wider Quality Assurance Improvement Framework (QAIF), plays a key part in assessing the quality of those services.

QST uses peer reviews visits of clinical teams as part of its quality assurance processes. At the moment, QST are assessing the effectiveness of its peer review processes and have commissioned the Unit for Evaluation and Policy Analysis at Edge Hill University to conduct an evaluability assessment of this programme.

The evaluability assessment was guided by three overarching questions: does the quality of the design of the QST programme allow for an evaluation to be completed? Are the results of the QST programme verifiable based on the planed collection systems? Would an evaluation of the QST programme be feasible, credible and useful? The evaluability assessment employed a review of programme documentation, interviews with the main stakeholders, providing a detailed analysis of the programme’s strengths and weaknesses.
