To ensure that ECTAS takes a multidisciplinary approach to accrediting ECT Clinics, we are delighted to have formal representatives from the following organisations sitting on our accreditation committee and standards development group:


How our scheme informs the CQC

CQC recognises the potential value of clinical service accreditation and peer-review schemes as information sources to support its inspections.  Such schemes have the potential to provide useful intelligence and provide independent assurance that accredited services meet standards.

The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) has developed, in association with the cross‐college clinical services accreditation stakeholder’s advisory group, a set of criteria to help CQC determine schemes that can provide robust and reliable information for consideration ahead of and during inspections.


ECTAS has applied and been approved as an official information source.

Any publically available information (for example accreditation status) will be taken into account in the CQC inspection methodology.
