Dr Martin Farrier Wrigtington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Trust Discusses Developing Internal Inspection for Quality

Dr Martin Farrier Clinical Director for Quality & Consultant Paediatrician Wrigtington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Trust Discusses Developing Internal Inspection for Quality:

  • setting up a process of “internal inspection” along the lines of Keogh, making changes, to maintain standards, and assure that they are maintained even when the CQC and others aren’t looking
  • using audit to demonstrate effectiveness
  • learning from avoidable mortality in your organization
  • supporting wards and services to demonstrate effectiveness

Martin qualified in 1992 from Charing Cross Medical School. He initially trained as a GP, before becoming a paediatrician. He took his first post as a Consultant in 2001 at Wigan where he specialised in Neonates and Cardiology. His interest in Mortality was initiated during his work as Deputy Medical Director, and more recently has continued in his role as Clinical Director for Quality. Working to reduce mortality has become an important part if his work at Wigan. The work has led to quality improvement work throughout the Trust. He is now the Associate Medical Director at Wigan.

In his time away from work, Martin is married with 3 children. However, he likes nothing more than running, cycling and swimming, ideally all together on a Sunday morning. He hopes to complete his fourth Ironman 70:3 triathlon and seventh Marathon later this year.
