Standards and accreditation

Our standards don’t just set the basic level of care that services should offer, but they offer aspiration for services and the opportunity to demonstrate excellence.

In Wales, we work closely with services in order to implement these standards, and deliver individuals a better standard of care. This includes the work of the College's Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI), and the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (NCCMH), you can find further information listed opposite.

Additionally, we've highlighted projects that we've endorsed with partner organisations as we believe they have real value in improving service delivery in Wales.
