The Future of Quality in Healthcare Provision and the role of the Peer ReviewProcess: Quality Networks

In this paper the authors discuss the history, motivation and policy development behind the quality agenda in healthcare, and summarise the challenges and current work on developing quality standards and indicators. They review the development of the principle of peer review of services and finally, they use the example of the Quality Network for Forensic Mental Health Services to explain how the Quality Network concept can be used to benchmark quality on a national level and lead to improvements in services.
