Afternoon guys!

There are two questions which will be asked in an interview I'm attending. I am not sure what type of answer I should give. The job is for a Clerical Assistant in a hospital. Anyway the questions are:

"Can you tell me the importance of Data Quality"

"Can you tell me the different pathways a patient may take to get an appointment in the NHS"

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks smile)

Good quality data is essential for tracking performance, measuring outcomes and therefore the basis for making change.

Thanks. I thought maybe it meant the patients data? Like the impotance of inputting their details accuratly.

I suppose it's the same answer. Data is collected for a purpose. Good data quality helps fulfil that purpose. Below a certain treshold of quality rhe data will be useless.
