In May 2019, St. Vincent’s Private Hospital (SVPH) Endoscopy Unit, were successful in achieving their JAG (Joint Advisory Group) Accreditation Assessment following an in-depth site assessment. JAG accreditation is a formal recognition that our Endoscopy Service had demonstrated that it was competent to deliver against the criteria set out in the JAG standards.
The JAG Accreditation Scheme was established in the UK in 2005 to focus on standards around Endoscopy and identify areas for improvement. To achieve JAG Accreditation, an Endoscopy Service must provide clear evidence that they have met all of the JAG standards.
JAG accreditation aims to; increase patient confidence in services, provides a knowledge base of best practices, ensures continuous improvement in processes and patient outcomes and improves the management and efficiency of services.
