Rapid improvement guide: trusted assessors PDF, 230.9 KB

This rapid improvement guide assists the development of a safe trusted assessor model.

To create a safe trusted assessor model, care homes and hospitals should co-design and agree a protocol or memorandum of understanding for assessments, documenting who can carry them out, what competencies are required, how they will be delivered, what the review mechanisms will be and what will happen if the receiving service judges that the assessment is flawed.

This guide also complements Developing trusted assessment schemes: essential elements developed across NHS England, NHS Improvement, the Local Government Association, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, the Care Provider Alliance and the Department of Health.
