    *****Birmingham Quality Participant Survey*****

    We are currently undertaking our annual participant survey and would very much welcome your feedback. Your comments are very important to us and will help us to improve the service we provide to you. The survey relates only to the EQA services provided from the Birmingham Quality [UK NEQAS] centre.

    A copy of the questionnaire is attached to the back of this report. It is very simple and asks only two questions:

    All our time periods are 'rolling' to give you current information. You may wish to keep you own log of Calendar Year or Financial Year time points if you require 'year-end' statements for your own internal use. Any analytes with out of consensus performance will be highlighted in red and can be clicked for further details.

    This scheme cycle is notionally every four weeks. Analytically, we assess you over a six month time window (6 Distributions). For return rates, late and amended results we assess you over a twelve month period (12 distributions).

    The new Participation Summary page is an exciting new feature which we hope you will like. It is currently in prototype mode but will ultimately expand into having the Interpretative analytes as well as the existing numerical analytes listed and will contain turnaround graphs etc., too.

    For the moment it would be helpful if you could check the accuracy of the data presented, particularly the return-rate elements.

    Many thanks, Finlay

    If your laboratory is outside of the acceptable limits of performance for any its rolling time-window scores (A, B or C scores), this will be indicated by a red traffic light symbol. It is the responsibility of the laboratory to undertake an internal investigation to establish the underlying cause and put in place corrective and preventive action. Please do not wait to receive a formal notification of performance from the Scheme Organiser or the National Quality Assurance Advisory Panel (NQAAP) before logging the non-conformity and, where necessary, acting upon the data contained in your report. A green traffic light merely reflects that your laboratory is performing as well as the state-of-the-art allows; it does not necessarily mean that your assay / laboratory performance is good enough clinically.

    The A scores for Erythropoietin are all based on concentration- dependent degree of difficulty factors and, as such, are in the same currency as the A scores in other Schemes. Please see the online 'Explanation of the ABC of EQA' which may be found under the 'Centre' button on the UK NEQAS Results & Reports page. You will need your user-name and password to access this information.

    All samples issued have been tested negative by standard methods for HIV, TPHA, Hepatitis B and C.

    Gentamycin, penicillin and fluconazole have been added to all specimens.

    Please note that any 'spiked' specimens distributed through the scheme will be clearly marked as such. Unless stated otherwise, they will contain non-endogenous Epoetin beta which may not be recovered by the kit assays in the same way as patients erythropoietin.

    Specimens for Distribution 118 will be dispatched on Monday 6 July 2015, results are due back by Sunday 26 July 2015.

    If we have entered your results as 'XPL' , it is because you did not report a result for that analyte, but you did provide an explanation as to why a result was not reported.

    You can enter any Late results or Non-analytical errors for Distribution 117 on the web under the usual Results button. Please ensure you select the correct Distribution number from the dropdown. You should include your name and a valid reason. Amending results is at the discretion of the Programme Organiser and is not an automatic entitlement. You have until the close of the Distribution 118 to make requests for any such amendments.
