Invited Review Service

Our service gives healthcare organisations an opportunity to adopt a proactive approach in seeking assurances on the care for infants, children and young people. Working with a team of independent, expert peer reviewers, organisations can address areas of concern and identify scope for quality improvement.

We deliver clinically-led peer reviews to healthcare organisations

Invited reviews are there when you need independent, objective expert advice and external assurance on your clinical services and quality of care.

Invited reviews are a safe space for active listening, and we encourage and support all relevant staff to bring their perspective.
