EQuIP5 Day Procedure Centres (DPC)

Overview of EQuIP5 for Day Procedure Centres                                          

EQuIP5 Day Procedure Centres is a three-year quality assessment and improvement accreditation program that supports excellence in consumer / patient care and services, to meet the specific needs of stand-alone day procedure centres, day hospitals, day surgeries and facilities which do not provide overnight accommodation.

Big thank you for the excellent webinar on NSQHS Standard 5 on Tuesday 17 March. The topic was presented in a very clear way with lots of examples of what surveyors would expect to see when on site.
