the most simple way of understanding audit

10 General Comments

Audit may...

  • Be seen as a threat.
  • Be seen as an unpleasant, time-consuming distraction from day-to-day practice.
  • Antagonise if introduced in an insensitive way.
  • Give the impression of implied criticism.

Audit must...

  • Assist staff.
  • Be effective at improving care.
  • Not be a menace or a means of discipline.
  • Have a clear purpose.

Tip: use the no-blame approach

  • Respect the individual skills of staff – they know their own jobs better than anybody else.
  • Create an atmosphere in which mistakes can be admitted without blame.
  • Audit in the right atmosphere can be fun!

Bradford VTS was created by Dr. Ramesh Mehay, a Programme Director for Bradford GP Training Scheme back in 2001. Over the years, it has seen many permutations.  At the time, there were very few resources for GP trainees and their trainers so Bradford decided to create one FOR EVERYONE. 

So, we see Bradford VTS as  the INDEPENDENT vocational training scheme website providing a wealth of free medical resources for GP trainees, their trainers and TPDs everywhere and anywhere.  We also welcome other health professionals – as we know the site is used by both those qualified and in training – such as Associate Physicians, ANPs, Medical & Nursing Students. 

Our fundamental belief is to openly and freely share knowledge to help learn and develop with each other.  Feel free to use the information – as long as it is not for a commercial purpose.   

We have a wealth of downloadable resources and we also welcome copyright-free educational material from all our users to help build our rich resource (send to

Our sections on (medical) COMMUNICATION SKILLS and (medical) TEACHING & LEARNING are perhaps the best and most comprehensive on the world wide web (see white-on-black menu header section on the homepage).
