Drug Safety Update gains NHS Evidence accreditation

NHS Evidence Accreditation Scheme recognises organisations that demonstrate high standards in producing health or social care guidance.

Article date: March 2010

Drug Safety Update has been accredited by NHS Evidence, the website which provides rapid access to evidence, guidance, and government policy on health and social care. The NHS Evidence Accreditation Scheme recognises organisations that demonstrate high standards in producing health or social care guidance. An accreditation mark against a search result reassures users that the information has been constructed to a high standard.

The accreditation evaluation found that the processes which underpin Drug Safety Update articles are robust and comprehensive. It also found that the recommendations in our guidance are clear, specific, unambiguous, and timely.

Drug Safety Update articles will now be available through NHS Evidence. They will be displayed with the accreditation mark (left) and appear near the top of relevant searches.
