The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) has been licensed by The Royal College of Radiologists and the College of Radiographers to manage and deliver ISAS.
ISAS is a patient-focussed assessment and accreditation programme that is designed to help diagnostic imaging services ensure that their patients consistently receive high quality services, delivered by competent staff working in safe environments. ISAS is the only nationally recognised accreditation scheme available for diagnostic imaging services in the UK and provides an essential framework for services to engage with a key deliverable outlined in the recently published NHS England business plan:
" ensure that more than 70% of all scientific and diagnostic services are part of accreditation programmes and demonstrate robust quality assurance measures by end March 2015."
-NHS England Putting Patients First, Business Plan 2014-15 to 2016-17
UKAS assesses imaging services against the ISAS Standard and ensures that required standards are maintained through regular monitoring. An enhanced package of pre-application support is available to all services, as well as an optional staged pathway to accreditation during the initial assessment.
