Setting Professional Standards
Our professional standards define what good practice and systems look like, for the whole profession.
The best standards support you to better your own practice. But they also challenge you to push yourself, your team and your organisation, to improve today’s services, shape future services and deliver high-quality patient care across all settings and sectors.
NICE has accredited the process we use to produce our standards, competency frameworks and guidance, validating our robust approach.
Here's an RPS and GPhC joint statement Using standards to help provide safe and effective care for members of the public, which demonstrates the importance of using and applying professional standards.
