Quality, Efficiency & Support Team (QuEST)

Applying Quality Improvement Science to Performance Challenges

QuEST supports the delivery of quality and efficiency within NHSScotland by coordinating the implementation of the NHSScotland Efficiency and Productivity Framework for SR10, providing support to NHS Boards through benchmarking, data development and its associated toolkits.

We focus on high-volume, high-cost services to identify and test innovations which could lead to improved levels of efficiency and quality.

QuEST also assists NHS Boards to assess the impact of redesign on service delivery and provides support to NHS Boards who may require additional help to identify and release efficiencies or where performance challenges are identified.

QuEST also supports Boards to develop their own capacity and capability for continuous improvement and contributes to national partnerships such as the Quality Improvement Hub to facilitate this.
