Trainer Information

Specialty Groupings

 

The Quality Workstream has 8 specialty Quality Management Groups or sQMGs that are responsible for the governance around data & intelligence management including the management of QM-QI visits for the specialties within their scope.

The membership of each sQMGs consist of a LDD (who chairs the group), at least one Associate Postgraduate Dean (Quality), at least one Quality Improvement Manager and at least one Quality Improvement Administrator.

Other members include Associate Postgraduate Deans (APGDs) for specialties who bring intelligence around training issues in their specialties to the sQMGs, representatives of Foundation and GP-OM-PHM sQMGs (where appropriate) as well as lay and Royal College representation.

SQMGs meet every two months, and each reports on its activities to the overarching Deanery Quality Management Group (DQMG) via a SQMG Highlights report.

SQMGs have 4 core functions that support their LDDs to effect their QM responsibilities for their specialty groupings:

  • Management of data and intelligence relating to training in their specialties including their Quality Review Panel
  • Management of QM-QI visits in their specialties
  • Governance of their specialty data that feeds into the Deanery Report to the GMC
  • Engagement with external and internal stakeholders around the QM-QI remit for their specialties (including support for the STB for the same specialties).
