Those who endorse quality standards must be:

  • National patient, carer, voluntary, charity and non-governmental organisations that are run by, or directly reflect the perspectives of patients, service users, carers or client groups, and represent the interests of people whose care is covered by the quality standard in England.
  • National organisations that represent the healthcare professionals who provide the services described in the quality standard in England.
  • Statutory organisations (an organisation set up by government for a specific purpose) including Ofsted, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, Health Protection Agency, National Screening Committee, Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, National Patient Safety Agency and Local Government Improvement and Development.
