The measurement of scientific and diagnostic services was more complex than originally envisaged which meant that the 70% target for these services to be part of an accreditation programme was difficult to quantify. NHS England continues to lead a programme of work to increase the number of scientific and diagnostic services that are part of accreditation programmes and demonstrate robust quality assurance measures.
