NHS Evidence also provides an accreditation scheme to help users identify trusted sources of information and, in the longer term,  aims to improve the quality of guidance produced for use by health and social care professionals.

The service draws on evidence-based information and tools from a range of sources, including those developed by professional bodies, such as the RCGP.

Dr Leng will explain how there will be strong links between the new QOF process and NHS Evidence and in the longer term accreditation processes will be developed for other types of information to support best practice and service delivery.
