Care quality improvement, assurance and accreditation

Our Surveyor Team and Panel

The CHKS accreditation team is supported by a network of healthcare and quality experts. This group support CHKS either as surveyors for client surveys or as members on our Awards Panel or Accreditation Council.

Accreditation Council and Awards Panel

The CHKS Accreditation Council and the Awards Panel both play vital roles in assuring the highest levels of quality and impartiality in the accreditation process. As a team of independent volunteers with a breadth of healthcare expertise, they are ideally positioned to ensure the awards process is followed correctly and impartially, to inform standards development, and advise on issues relating to the quality agenda. Click here to view the list of council and panel members.
