Local Accreditation activity

As part of the CNO Shared Governance: Collective Leadership work at NHS England and NHS Improvement we would like to develop a better understanding of where we have local accreditation programmes across the country. Below is the start of our national ‘heatmap’ to plot out where we have such programmes – so we can share and also support increasing these numbers where relevant.

An image of the map of England with Local Accreditation activity identified using burgundy coloured dots.

The definition that we are working to of ward/unit accreditation is ‘a set of quality standards so that areas of excellence can be celebrated and areas for improvement identified; a structured quality framework’.

If you like to share your work with us as we continue to build the map please contact us at england.1professionalvoice@nhs.net
