Significant work has been undertaken over the past 18 months on revising the IQAS standards. The revised standards have been aligned with the PAS (Publicly Available Standards) 1616. The standards are available for public consultation in October 2018 for four weeks, aligning with the BSACI meeting.
The PAS is a nationally recognised standard owned and published by the British Standards Institute (BSI). It was created as a framework for clinical service accreditation schemes.
The proposed standards are available for download here and we welcome comments from anyone who would like to contribute. Please provide comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday 16th November.
As these standard are based on BSI PAS 1616, certain parts of the document cannot be amended. However, all of the specialty specific information can be tailored.
To go alongside the standards, there is a document of Quality Metrics that underpin the standards. These are attached and open for public consultation until 5pm on Friday 16th November, please send comments to email@example.com
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The public consultation has now closed, if you have any queries regarding the consultation process please email email@example.com
