The Quality Review Scheme for rheumatology's a quality improvement process aimed at raising standards across services throughout the UK, ultimately improving patient service and experience.

The Quality Review Scheme (QRS) for rheumatology helps and support services in improving patient care and patient experience.

This voluntary scheme aims to promote excellence in all aspects of rheumatology, targeting improvement in patient care and experience, running in a three-year cycle, offering a professionally-led inspection service that provides independent external validation for your own quality assurance practices.

Achieving our quality assurance inspection mark and certificate demonstrates compliance with national best practice standards in patient care.
