PRSAS response

How will COVID-19 affect PRSAS?

In order to support efforts to contain and mitigate against threats posed by the coronavirus outbreak, the Royal College of Physicians’ (RCP) Accreditation Unit has decided to postpone all PRSAS accreditation site assessments up to and including 30 June 2020.

As a leading health organisation aimed at improving patient care and preventing disease in the UK and globally, the RCP takes seriously its responsibility to protect clinicians and the public from contracting COVID-19 and to prevent the further spread of the virus.

We appreciate that services will be under a lot of pressure in response to COVID-19. Please be assured your accreditation status will not be affected during this period and we will take a flexible and proportionate approach to services at the time of assessment and annual review.

Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding at this time.

Please email with any further queries.
