How are accreditation assessments affected by COVID-19?
12 October 2020

We have restarted accreditation assessments after a 6 month pause due to COVID-19. All services can now request an assessment once they have met the standards and uploaded their evidence in their self assessmet.

During this period we have reviewed the assessment pathway to ensure the safety of patients, staff and assessors, and to support services as they gain accreditation.

You can find detailed guidance on the accreditation pathway changes here

We would like to thank services for their patience during these challenging times and encourage you to submit an assessment request as soon as you are ready.

Please read carefully and take any action requested - this message will not be shown the next time you log in
