Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing

Welcome to Quality 4 Health +Wellbeing, the accreditation standard for groups and organisations delivering health and wellbeing services across the country.

Welcome to Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing

Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing is a way of generating trust from funders, service users and those referring people into health and wellbeing services i.e. GPs, social prescribers, social care teams, etc  that your organisation has attained the highest service delivery standards possible and continuously seeks opportunities for service improvement. Much like how a home survey, an MOT or a PAT test reassures you of the safety and quality of a product, Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing is a stamp of approval of your organisation’s commitment to excellence in all aspects of your service delivery.

Our world is changing rapidly and we are here to enable the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Sector to become integral to local provision for the benefit of local people

What is Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing?

The Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing accreditation is designed to address the pillars of quality identified in the NHS Five Year Forward View and the key questions posed by the Care Quality Commission. Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing provides evidence to commissioners and funders that your  organisation has achieved an exceptional standard of health and wellbeing service delivery and has in place mechanisms to continually improve service delivery.  The accreditation can be applied across Public, Private and Third Sectors however it has been primarily developed in response to a need for an easily identifiable kitemark of high quality service delivery in the Voluntary and Community sector, this accreditation is designed for those already delivering health and wellbeing services, or those looking to expand into this sector.

Why is it needed?

The NHS Long Term Plan (2019) promotes an integrated approach to health and wellbeing with the voluntary and community sector playing a vital role in delivering services. Partnership working across sectors and the establishment of social prescribing will be successful where there is confidence in the safety and effectiveness of each sector and partner/provider. 

Your Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing accreditation will efficiently demonstrate:

Sectors using the accreditation

Local Authorities

We are currently working with a number of Local Authorities to support the development of the voluntary and community sector.  We are achieving this by helping to demonstrate the quality and outcomes for their services users and supporting organisations to be ready to deliver public sector contracts, such as social prescribing. We could also support Local Authorities to improve quality within your care home settings by offering a bespoke support package.

Clinical Commissioning Groups

Quality For Health was developed in partnership with Calderdale CCG. We are working with a number of CCGs who are interested in quality assurance for voluntary and community organisations delivering health services, enabling them to demonstrate the difference their organisations make to services users and patients by delivering high quality services. CCGs may be interested to support their local voluntary and community sector and be more confident around commissioning and referrals through working with Quality For Health. Quality For Health can also support priorities laid out in the NHS Long Term Plan, such as social prescribing and supporting organisations delivering prevention, mental health and support for carers. 

Quality For Health can also be used as a useful tool in bringing partners together to develop Primary Care Networks.
