Continuously Improving Quality

Continuously Improving Quality - Accreditation Framework

The Continuously Improving Quality Accreditation Framework (CIQ AF) is a new national measure for Transformational Change in healthcare. The CIQ offers a formal framework for healthcare organisations to view a complete picture of how well they are leading transformation and creates a roadmap for progression.


The CIQ self-assessment is the first stage in identifying where your organisation currently is on its transformational journey. The assessment is based on the eight areas of focus in the NHS Change Model and confirms where your organisation compares with other organisations.

On completion of the assessment a summary report will appear on screen. We will then be in touch with a more detailed report outlining your organisation’s areas of strengths and weakness in relation to the NHS Change Model.

Please click on the CIQ self-assessment button to start the assessment.
