Quality For Health is a quality assurance system for groups and organisations delivering health and wellbeing services in a marketplace that is increasingly reliant on providers being able to evidence the delivery of high quality outcomes.
Originally developed in partnership with Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group, Quality For Health was set up to support the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector to demonstrate the quality of their services. Since then, the award has continued to develop and expand and is now being used across a variety of sectors and locations in the UK to provide assurance to service users, funders and referrers that services are of the highest quality.
Quality for Health has three levels designed to support organisations – from small community based groups to larger established organisations. The system addresses the three pillars of quality identified in the NHS Five Year forward view and the five key questions posed by the Care Quality Commission.
