Why participate?

Accreditation provides independent and impartial recognition that a service demonstrates high levels of quality. This means that patients can feel confident in their endoscopy service and be assured of receiving high quality consistent care. 

It provides a sense of pride for the endoscopy service in being able to show that it offers a high quality and safe service. Accredited departments can also be more attractive to potential employees and trainees.

There are many benefits of accreditation for services, commissioners and patients, including:

  • independently measuring services against national standards and reducing variation
  • demonstrating a service‚Äôs dedication to improvement, patient safety and reducing risk
  • improving value for money by increasing efficiency and improving patient experience
  • raising the profile of a service across the organisation and leveraging support for investment
  • helping teams highlight and share good practice as well as expert, targeted advice on where to focus your improvement efforts.
A number of the accreditation programmes managed by the Royal College of Physicians are supported by the CQC, and JAG is a recognised information source to support CQC inspections. 

JAG accreditation is available for all NHS and independent providers across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
