Improving Quality in Liver Services

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has officially launched its new exemplar liver accreditation programme, Improving Quality in Liver Services (IQILS), led by Dr James Ferguson, clinical lead for the programme.

Born out of the successful LiverQuest pilot project, IQILS is supported by the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) and the British Association for the Study of the Liver (BASL) and has been shaped in partnership with the wider liver community, professional bodies, societies and patient groups.

Having taken learning and recommendations from the original LiverQuest pilot, the new accreditation scheme, will support liver services to deliver high-quality care for patients.

IQILS is open to all liver services across the UK, enabling them invaluable access to a new online tool, expertise and up to date guidance on improving standards and enhancing patient experience.
