Quality Improvement

Quality Improvement work with the National School of Healthcare Science

HEI accreditation

The Academy oversees NSHCS accreditations, joins some visits as an independent observer, and undertakes desk-based review activity of the visit documentation and annual monitoring submissions.

Workplace accreditation

The Academy endorses the NSHCS drive for higher standards and has helped NSHCS to link its works to various service accreditation initiatives, so as to share intelligence and minimise bureaucracy.

National initiative

The Academy continues to work closely with the four country organisations such as Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW), NHS Education for Scotland (NES), Health Education England, now merged with Health Education England to input into national healthcare science strategies and to exploit the potential for fuller sharing of multi-professional quality assurance intelligence and environmental scanning. We are committed to sharing information on best practise with a range of organisations including employers, four country bodies  and the Professional Standards Authority. Feedback provides good intelligence on areas that need to be improved.
