Publication of managing underperformance in endoscopists guidance
4 November 2019

Managing underperformance in endoscopists can be challenging for service leads and the practitioner. With the roll-out of the National Endoscopy Database (NED), services have unprecedented access to the performance data of endoscopists, including real-time benchmarking against national quality standards. Inevitably, there will be instances where performance falls below the minimum standards considered acceptable for patient care (ie underperformance). 

This JAG guidance provides endoscopists and service leads with a UK-focused framework for managing suspected underperformance, with reference to existing BCSP protocols and the recent expert opinion by Rees et al on the identification and management of underperformance in endoscopy.
