Blood Transfusion local reports
About these reports
These local reports present the findings from peer review of NHS
board's performance against the blood transfusion standards.
About the review
The review process has three key phases: preparation prior to
the visit; the visit; and the report production and publication
following the visit. During each visit, each multidisciplinary
review team assesses performance using the categories 'met', 'not
met' and 'not met (insufficient evidence)', as detailed below.
- 'Met' applies where the evidence demonstrates the standard
and/or criterion is being attained.
- 'Not met' applies where the evidence demonstrates the standard
and/or criterion is not being attained.
- 'Not met (insufficient evidence)' applies where no evidence is
available for the review team, or where the evidence available is
insufficient to allow an assessment to be made.
A final category 'not applicable' is used where a standard
and/or criterion does not apply to the NHS board under review.
Each review team is led by an experienced reviewer, who is
responsible for guiding the team in their work and ensuring that
team members are in agreement about the assessment reached.
