It has provided the opportunity to enhance our high standards of quality across the organisation with a key focus on health outcomes for service users allowing us to assess for ourselves the ability to confirm we are offering a person centred approach to the support we provide, and that positive outcomes are achieved with robust policies and procedures in place

 “Quality for Health has given us a framework that supports all aspects of our work at WomenCentre. It provides a robust process to quality assure our direct work as well as all aspects of our organisational governance. We are pleased to have this external ratification of our work across Calderdale and Kirklees”

“QFH helped us tremendously to formalise our structures and implement codes of conduct which has helped manage conflicts of interest. We worked the whole standard through involving members who volunteer and are service users to help co-design a meaningful service that made people feel safe

 “The Quality For Health award has helped our organisation reassess and evaluate all our current policies and procedures applying equality tools throughout the entire process. The award has also reassured us that we have always had the service users interests, experience, outcomes and empowerment at the heart of all we do and strive to achieve.”

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.
