About Us

QRS provides Peer-To-Peer reviews and other ‘whole pathway’ assessments for organisations in the NHS.

We are invited, not imposed. Our clients recognise they have an issue that needs developmental and supportive quality reviews, and that’s where we come in.

We are the only organisation of our kind to have UKAS accreditation, so we have an enormous emphasis on the quality of our services.

As a result, the reports we produce are hugely respected.
