General Accreditation Information

In order to ensure the integrity and sustainability of this work we have developed the Quality Hallmark Accreditation Processes. This enables organisations to demonstrate sustained best practice.

We have bi-annual conferences and award ceremonies throughout the year to celebrate good practice.

  • Care Homes Accreditation was developed in 2008, with two rounds of up to 100 care homes per round.
  • Primary Care Accreditation was developed in 2012, with the first 7 practices receiving their award at our conference in November 2012.
  • Community Hospitals Accreditation was developed in 2013, with the first 12 awards in Cornwall in September 2014. 
  • Acute Hospitals Accreditation was developed in 2013, with the first 5 wards from Royal Devon and Exeter and Morecambe Bay NHS Trust. 
  • Prison Accreditation was developed in 2016, with HMP Norwich becoming the first prison to receive the award.
