Due to the impact of COVID-19 both to the College and its member services, we have adapted our reviews to be conducted remotely and safely via Microsoft Teams until the end of June 2021. Review days will continue to include all of the essential components of the regular face-to-face reviews, providing the opportunity to review and learn from the host team's current practices and offer advice and support from your teams' experiences.
We are happy to provide a letter to confirm your attendance on the review, which you are able to use as part of your CPD activity (subject to peer group approval).
A typical peer-review day
Why being a peer reviewer is beneficial
Training is required for accreditation reviews only. See our video above to get a feel of a typical peer-review day.
On a review day, the review team will discuss any challenges that you identified during your self-review and offer advice where possible. They’ll also interview patients, family/carers, and other agencies that you work with to get an overall view of the care provided.
The day is an excellent opportunity for you to reflect on your current practice and ask for guidance from the review team. Not only does the host team benefit from the day, but the review team can take learning back to their services, which facilitates quality improvement for everyone involved.
