Quality Audit & Research Coordinators (QuARCs)

QuARCs are a national network of engaged clinicians delivering research and quality improvement initiatives

Quality Audit & Research Coordinators (QuARCs) are the HSRC's main point of contact within a trust for national audits, quality improvement projects, multi-centre research and other academic issues.
