Information Standard accreditation
HQIP is accredited by The Information Standard - the scheme developed by the Department of Health to help the public identify trustworthy health and social care information easily.
To achieve the standard, organisations must show that their processes and systems produce information that is: ‘accurate, impartial, balanced, evidence-based, accessible and well-written'.
The assessment of information producers is provided by independent certification bodies accredited by The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Organisations that meet the Standard can place the quality mark on their information materials and their websites. This quality mark (see right-hand side of this page) is a symbol of quality and assurance, which viewers can rely on.
Information Standard disclaimer: HQIP shall hold responsibility for the accuracy of the information it publishes and neither the scheme operator nor the scheme owner shall have any responsibility whatsoever for costs losses or direct or indirect damages or costs arising from inaccuracy of information or omissions in information published on the website on behalf of HQIP.
