The Society for Endocrinology peer review scheme

Antonia Brooke


Royal Devon and Exeter Foundation Trust, Exeter, UK.


Society for Endocrinology peer review is in its 16th year. In 2018 the format has been updated and single centre reviews are now being carried out. The catchment area of hospitals reviewed has varied from 280 000 to 2.5 million. A review helps to highlight a centre’s strengths and help focus on areas for development. It is a qualitative deep dive into a service which includes benchmarking against other similar services. The review is conducted by a team of clinical endocrinologists and specialist nurses with a similar profile to the trust being reviewed. It is mutually beneficial to centres and reviewers and a good benchmark for quality of care. This talk will explain the benefits of the scheme, provide examples of good practice from recent reviews and innovative ways of networking to support continued improvements in endocrinology in the future.
