The standard is underpinned by an evidence gathering process against the indicators, followed by external assessment. Organisations have up to twelve calendar months to complete their evidence gathering.  Once achieved, the standard lasts for two years at which time organisations can undertake a renewal. 

What is involved in working towards Quality For Health?

To undertake the Quality For Health standard, you will need organisational commitment and staff time to work through the self assessment, gather evidence and implement the changes and recommendations.

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.
