Accreditation of Units

Standards for Service Provision in Urogynaecology Units: Certification of Units

The Accreditation document has been revised. Version 2 will be used from 1 April 2016 so if you are currently preparing documents you will have to have these documents with the Governance Team by the end of 31 March 2016 if you wish to be assessed according to the Version 1 criteria. Version 1 & 2 are available on this website below.

The purpose of accreditation is to define and monitor standards of care, organisation and quality within urogynaecology units. These standards will be measurable, comparable and identify those units which deliver best practice. They are designed to provide a robust mechanism for ensuring quality control in units practising clinical urogynaecology, which will be of value to service users, commissioners and providers.
The standards provide a framework that will help urogynaecology units to improve patient care, encourage multidisciplinary working, and enhance prospects for individuals units to grow and develop.
