  • supporting and empowering people to have an informed voice in managing their own care and shaping how services are designed and delivered
  • delivering scrutiny activity which is fair but challenging and leads to improvements for patients
  • providing quality improvement support to healthcare providers, and
  • providing clinical standards, guidelines and advice based upon the best available evidence.
