Accreditation and quality assurance for care homes
Helping care homes to apply quality standards to improve patient care
Who is accreditation for?
Care homes in the UK are under pressure to enhance their care services and to demonstrate quality of service and processes. If your care organisation is committed to delivering the highest quality services then accreditation could be right for you.
An accreditation programme offers a framework of standards for continuous quality improvement, whether you are starting from a place of needing improvement or already performing at an outstanding level.
It provides independent assurance to patients, staff and stakeholders that you are providing safe and affective services built around the patient.
Accreditation helps to:
- demonstrate credible and independent recognition of your commitment to quality and process improvement
- deliver better and safer care that is assessed against evidence-based standards
- enhance staff experience and help with staff retention.
