Take part in 2021 service improvement initiatives and the 2022 UK Parkinson's Audit
UK-wide Bone Health Improvement initiative
During 2021 we are concentrating on the quality improvement side of the audit cycle.
If your elderly care or neurology service took part in the Audit, it's eligible to participate in a UK-wide initiative to improve bone health. You'll find information on the rationale for the initiative, details of how to get involved and associated funding, in this factsheet (PDF, 172KB).
The next Audit will take place in 2022. Adding a year to the audit cycle will allow services to recover from the impact of COVID-19, and dedicate 2021 to service improvement.
The deadline for submitting service improvement plans has been extended to September 2021.
If you have any queries about the bone health project or the 2022 Audit, the Audit Team are on hand to support you.

2019 UK Parkinson's Audit - at a glance
This short video presented by Audit Lead Dr Anne Louise Cunnington, and accompanying poster, will give you a quick overview of the findings of the 2019 UK Parkinson's Audit.
"A national audit is the only process by which people with Parkinson's can get the uniform and standardised care that is so essential. The audit process initiated and championed by Parkinson's UK ensures a process of national benchmarking, which includes a focus on key outcome measures - motor, non-motor and multidisciplinary - to ensure that the NHS continues to deliver quality care, with personalised medicine for all people with Parkinson's across all age groups."
