Video: Choice of any qualified Provider

News from: Healthwatch Reading

27 February 2013

Any Qualified Provider (AQP) is a tool available to commissioners aimed at ensuring patients are offered the highest quality community services in a setting that suits them.

When a service is commissioned using choice of AQP, any provider which meets the strict NHS standard qualification process can provide a service locally. You can watch a video at the website www.healthandcare.dh.gov.uk/aqp-film/. This film informs clinicians, commissioners and patients about choice of AQP. The film shows how patients in the town of Saltash in Cornwall are beginning to benefit from choice of AQP.

The film was developed in partnership with ITN, and was initially shown at the NHS Alliance Conference in November 2012.
