Quest for Quality

This resource replaces the Anticipatory Quality Checklist (which can still be found in the archive collection). It maps the former LSC/NIACE/ISCRI mental health partnership Programme resources against the Common Inspection Framework (CIF) [2] to provide aspirational benchmarks for providers to use to improve the quality of your services for people with mental health difficulties.


This is a PDF version of the document. Download the Word version (so that you can complete and save the benchmarking forms).
