Healthcare services including Medical laboratories, Imaging and physiological science (incl. audiology, cardiology and respiratory) and affiliated healthcare service providers need to have sound mechanisms to enable them to deliver technically valid services and examination results to their users and patients. When such organisations seek to have their competence recognised through accreditation by UKAS, these processes should also enable the healthcare providers to demonstrate that they meet the requirements for an effective quality management system (as well as conformance with ISO 15189). This course provides key elements of the Laboratory Internal Audit course and effective Laboratory Management subject matter in relation to healthcare standards.
Participation in this course will develop skills and competence for various staff roles, including those responsible for quality management & coordination, technical leads or service management within an organisation.
