About the role

The College’s Invited Review Service (IRS) helps mental health providers in cases where severe difficulties have been identified which cannot be rectified by internal processes, and the circumstances don’t meet the criteria for involving the formal regulators.

We aim to provide services with clear and implementable recommendations to improve the quality of patient safety and care. The reviews may support services with concerns such as clinical service organisation, clinical service quality, clinical team functioning and the clinical practice of individual clinicians or teams.
