New Quality Management Jobs Forum


I thought it might be useful to have an area on the website where members can post details of jobs involving quality management in their departments.  

Full members should sign in, go to the jobs Forum and post details of the post, a website reference and a closing date. 

Let's see how this works!


Upgrade difficulties!

Dear all

Those of you who have been following my blogs will know that we have been trying to upgrade the version of our content management system for this site, from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.  This was undertaken over the Easter weekend, but a number of problems were identified which delayed re-opening the site for a few days.

I regret to say that since re-opening the site, we have encountered serious difficulties with the integrity of the underlying SQL database, and have had to revert to a backup of the old website content, in order to protect it from further damage.

Happy New Year!

Dear all,

I hope you all have had a good Christmas and are looking forward to a happy and prosperous New Year!

AQMLM is moving forward with what we believe will be an interesting set of events, now posted on the Forthcoming Events page, together with our new fees and discount offer.  We hope you will attend and make these a continued success.

Fees & discounts for next years events

Dear All

We have come to the end of a very busy year with the completion of five events.  The feedback on these has been generally very good, so we are content that we are meeting the needs of members.

The events programme for next year has been decided, and dates and themes are posted on the Forthcoming Events page.  For these, we are proposing new fees and discounts, which were presented at the recent Information Management meeting.

Registration for the Information Management Symposium

Hi all!

I've just opened registration for the 10th November 2015 "Information Management" Symposium.

We are expecting considerable interest in this, so please sign up as soon as possible.  If you haven't renewed your membership, signing up with the non-members fee will upgrade you and save you £5!

This will be the first of our meetings that I will not be able to attend, as the ISO meeting at Geel (I sit on ISO TC 212 WG2) clashes, but my fellow Directors will look after the event and give my presentation.



Subscription renewals

Hi all

We are now into the new subscription year, so it is time for you to renew your full membership if you have not done so already.  Just sign in and go to the 'Join/Renew' page under the 'Membership' tab.  I'll be sending a bulk email about this as well.

IBMS Congress follow up

Hi all

This year's Congress was good for us.  We had a lot of visitors to the Stand - three of whom won bottles of Champagne in our daily draw!  Most already knew about AQMLM, but a significant minority did not.  Once our status, aims and objectives were explained, all felt we are a 'good thing' and of value to the laboratory medicine service!

Activities at IBMS 2015

Hi all

Audit Workshop - 2 weeks to go!


Please do not leave it too late to sign up for this Workshop!

Full details are on the Forthcoming Events page!



Audit Theory & Practice Workshop 17th September 2015

Hi All

Registration is now open for the 17th September 2015 Workshop: "Audit Theory & Practice".  

This is a repeat of March's event, but we are changing the format of the afternoon session.  This will be a group audit exercise, where groups of 6-8 will be presented with some scenarios and asked to create an audit plan.  They will then be given further information and asked to discuss outcomes and further action.
