What is the Quality Network for Inpatient Learning Disability Services?


The Quality Network for Inpatient Learning Disability Services (QNLD) is a standards-based quality network that facilitates the sharing of good practice, provides a system of standards-based external peer review and provides accreditation.  It engages staff and service users in a comprehensive process of review, through which good practice and high quality care are recognised. Services are supported to identify areas for improvement and set achievable targets for change.

 

Accreditation is offered to services that are fully prepared. We recommend that a minimum of one year’s membership is completed before services transfer to accreditation
