About the Information Standard accreditation seen on this guide
Since 2011, HQIP has been accredited by the Information Standard - the NHS England scheme which identifies trustworthy and accessible health and social care information. As such you'll see that relevant guidance and other information, produced by HQIP, carries the Information Standard's quality mark.
To achieve the Information Standard, organisations must show that their processes and systems produce information that is: ‘clear, accurate, balanced, evidence-based and user-tested.' The assessment of information producers is provided by NHS England. Organisations that meet the Information Standard can place the quality mark on their information materials and their websites. This quality mark is a symbol of quality and assurance, which viewers can rely on.
Information Standard disclaimer: HQIP shall hold responsibility for the accuracy of the information they publish and neither the Scheme Operator nor the Scheme Owner shall have any responsibility whatsoever for costs, losses or direct or indirect damages or costs arising from inaccuracy of information or omissions in information published on the website on behalf of HQIP.
