Quality Assurance

At Consensus, our Quality Assurance Framework provide a continuous cycle of audit and observational audits that revolve around the individuals we support, placing a strong emphasis on their safety, quality, diversity and human rights (EDHR).  By leveraging essential quality data indicators, and using technical advances in the social care sector, our response becomes not only agile in response to risk, but also effective collaborative working results across all our services. Through continuously reviewing, analysing, and embedding our key quality assurance tools, we drive a positive learning culture throughout Consensus, shaping outstanding outcomes for the people we support and ensuring innovation is at the heart of our quality improvement.
