What is the Memory Services National Accreditation Programme?


The Memory Services National Accreditation Programme works with services to assure and improve the quality of memory services for people with memory problems / dementia and their carers.

It engages staff in a comprehensive process of review, through which good practice and high quality care are recognised, and services are supported to identify and address areas for improvement. 

Involving service users and carers in MSNAP is a priority, and people with first hand experience of using memory services are encouraged to get involved in all stages of the accreditation process.

Accreditation assures staff, service users and carers, commissioners and regulators of the quality of the service being provided, and is endorsed by the Care Quality Commission.

MSNAP is an initiative of the College Centre for Quality Improvement.
