The Welsh Assembly Government published the document Fundamentals of Care (2003) to support measures for quality improvement of care in Wales. This article reports on the progress being made in raising awareness of this framework and improving the quality of patient care in one large integrated NHS trust. The trust’s steering group was instrumental in putting the guidance into action, which resulted in project development and improved practice.
