Participant Manual

Confidentiality

The fact of participation, raw data and performance scores are confidential between the individual laboratory and the Scheme. Performance scores and relevant raw data may be shared with the relevant Advisory Panel under defined circumstances (see the Poor Performance Criteria).

UK NEQAS reports are copyright and may not be copied, distributed, published or used for publicity and promotion in any form without the written consent of the relevant Scheme Director on each and every occasion.

Participating centres may themselves choose to share details of their individual performance with clients (e.g. GPs, clinicians) without consultation with the Scheme Director.

UK NEQAS participant codes should not be disclosed to third parties. If a laboratory decides that the confidentiality of the participnat code has been compromised then the laboratory should contact the Scheme and at the discretion of the Scheme Director the code may be changed.
