Following the publication of the paper we're in the process of developing a self-assessment diagnostic to support the framework, and would welcome interest from colleagues across the country who would be interested in testing this. If you would like to request a hard copy of the paper, or are interested in testing the self-assessment diagnostic, please get in touch via AQuA@srft.nhs.uk. Alternatively, feel free to share your thoughts with us via Twitter @AQuA_NHS
