NHS Commissioning

An effective solution for managing your Premises Assurance Model

Since July 2021 it became a mandatory requirement for Estates and Facilities Management teams within NHS Trusts to submit an annual Premises Assurance Model (PAM) self-assessment.  NHS PAM is comprised of 42 workbooks, across 6 domains, covering all areas of estates and facilities:

  • Safety Hard

  • Safety Soft

  • Governance

  • Effectiveness

  • Efficiency

  • Patient Experience

QUIQSOLUTIONS QUIQCARE PAM Assurance Tool offers a different approach with numerous benefits compared with the spreadsheet version:

 

  • Real-time view of compliance across one or multiple domains

  • Includes all SAQ’s, Standards and Resources from the NHS PAM spreadsheet version

  • Reminders and alerts to ensure nothing gets missed

  • 5-tier Evidence RAG rating

  • Multi-user access with domains allocated to specific users

  • Action Plans including progress indicators

  • Reporting and dashboard views

  • Survey and Audit builder module

  • Peer review function working with consultants

  • Fully scalable, upgrade to include any quality standards or risk management requirements

“We were looking to improve the process for completing our PAM self-assessments, with document storage in a central location.  Quiqcare has provided us with a flexible, compliance monitoring software which is tailored to the PAM, and to our Trust’s department structure.  The ability to assign actions, track progress and upload evidence all in one place has certainly reduced the administrative burden on the Estates team and the reporting functions mean we can keep the senior and executive teams well informed throughout the year.”

We were really impressed as it offered a totally new approach to managing our PAM submissions. Being able to see where things are up to in real time and to set reminders is a big step forward from using the spreadsheet version.
