» Supporting Healthcare Commissioners

11 July, 2015

The need to drive up the quality of care for patients, whilst delivering efficiency and productivity, is a key principle for commissioners of healthcare services, both local commissioners (CCGs) and national specialised commissioners in NHS England (NHSE). UKAS accreditation is a tool that can be used to support the commissioning of healthcare services that are safe, effective and that continually improve the experience for patients.

This briefing sets out how existing UKAS accreditation schemes assist commissioning for quality.
