GIRFT Newsletter

Welcome to the first of what will be a monthly newsletter from the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) team. GIRFT’s mission is to help improve the quality of NHS care by reducing unwarranted variations in quality and efficiency. Importantly the programme is led by frontline clinicians who truly understand the challenges trusts and departments face.

This newsletter provides an update on progress across the GIRFT programme. I hope you find it informative and helpful. Contact us at if you have any comments or want to know more about GIRFT.
