Endoscopy team secure JAG accreditation

12 August 2022


Congratulations to our Endoscopy team, who have successfully had their JAG accreditation renewed.

JAG accreditation is awarded to endoscopy services that meet quality standards set out by the Joint Advisory Group on Gastro Intestinal Endoscopy, after an independent assessment.


The accreditation scheme is both patient-centred and workforce-focussed. To meet the standards required for accreditation, endoscopy units need to demonstrate that they continually improve the quality and safety of the care provided; maintain a strong focus on ensuring patients have a positive experience; provide excellent training and development opportunities for all staff; and uphold a safe and comfortable environment for patients and staff.

Our Endoscopy Unit was first JAG accredited in 2013 and has since been successful in its rolling annual accreditation.
