Accreditation Services


Service providers, the public and funders all benefit from consistent standards and quality assurance.  MBARC have been closely involved in the development of a range of quality assurance systems and audit based accreditation processes and currently we have two active audit programmes:

• Assuring Quality in Sexual Assault Services

• Accreditation for Further Education Colleges Against the Sexual Health Service Standards: Going All The Way

Assuring Quality in Sexual Assault Services

This is a pilot project that sets out to achieve a quality assurance framework for sexual assault services provided by the Havens in London. It is based upon the service specification (November 2012) and the “securing Excellence” (June 2013) documents published by NHS England. It will also build upon the work undertaken by Kings College, London in terms of a standard monitoring and performance framework since acquiring the pan-London contract in April 2013.

Assuring Quality for Sexual Health Services in Further Education Colleges

Provision of the youth led Accreditation Service for the Going All the Way for the London Sexual Health Programme

As part of MBARC’s programme of work to develop sexual health services for young people in London’s Further Education Colleges (the FESH Programme) we have developed a service specification for sexual health services: Going All the Way. This has:
• Three levels of attainment aligned with Ofsted gradings: Satisfactory, Good & Outstanding
• The Specification covers four service domains: (i) Information, Advice & Guidance (ii) Contraception & Prevention (iii) Screening &Testing (iv) Pregnancy & Parenthood.
