News and events

QNIC will be holding a Special Interest Day. We will be announcing a theme for the event shortly.

CAMHS Accreditation Training is aimed at clinicians and patient/carer representatives who want to understand more about the process, and is compulsory to attend for those who wish to participate in accreditation reviews in the future. You are not required to attend this training for focused or comprehensive peer-review visits.

This is the perfect opportunity if you plan to or have already signed up or for an accreditation visit as a reviewer or patient/carer representative this cycle and have not attended the training previously, or indeed if you have already completed the training and wish to refresh your knowledge of the process ahead of your next accreditation review.

We will be holding this training via Zoom. Sign up information will be released nearer the time.
