Description:
The publication of the health strategy document "Shaping a Healthier Future" placed an onus on health service providers to meet the highest possible quality standards within the resources available. This led to enquiries to the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) regarding quality management systems standards such as ISO 9000 and how they could be used to the benefit of health service providers. It became evident that there was a need to clarify how such quality system standards could be applied to the complex and wide range of services provided by health service organisations. It was with this in mind that NSAI decided that it would be beneficial to all concerned if an interpretative document was available for the application of ISO 9000 in the health service sector. After wide consultation with representatives from all areas of the sector a working group was set up comprising of N5AI personnel and representatives from the medical, nursing and administrative functions of the health services. The initiative was supported by the Chief Executive Officers of the Health Boards and the voluntary hospitals.
