Excellence in Informatics Accreditation achieved
We are thrilled to announce that our Data, Digital and Technology directorate has achieved the prestigious “Excellence in Informatics” Level 2 accreditation from the North West Informatics Skills Development Network (ISDN).
The ISDN accreditation is a peer-assessed standard, and we were required to provide extensive evidence of our capability and skills development practice against rigorous criteria. This recognition benchmarks highly our informatics staff’s expertise and encompasses all aspects of their personal and professional development, covering areas such as infrastructure, personal and career growth, professional advancement, workforce planning, people management and leadership.
Debbie Bywater, Chief Information Officer at NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU, said: “I am absolutely delighted that building upon our achievement of obtaining Excellence in Informatics Level 1 accreditation last summer, we have now achieved Level 2 accreditation from the North West Skills Development Network. The accreditation process involved an external assessment against a wide range of criteria all of which we demonstrated we met, and in several cases exceeded in respect of the required standards.
“We approached the accreditation as a continuous improvement opportunity for the service. It was a very positive experience, it has provided a framework to consider our workforce and service development holistically and it will inform the ongoing development of our organisational development plan.”
For our clients, this accreditation reaffirms our commitment to staff development and service quality, showcasing our focus on both staff welfare and service excellence.
