5 Year Anniversary - PRSAS April 2023
24 April 2023


We've hit several major milestones over the past 5 years, and want to take the time to appreciate how far we've come with all your support. We launched the PRSAS programme in April 2018 with nine services registered. By 2022, we reached 100 services registered. As of March 2023, we now have over 130 services taking part in the programme.


 Over the past 5 years, we have held 11 assessments, improving the process each time with service feedback, support from stakeholders and input from assessors. Our training catalogue has expanded due to huge interest from registered services: we started with face-to-face sessions in 2019, which were then adapted to remote sessions during COVID-19. We now hold beginner sessions and advanced training to support self-assessments and evidence upload. Our quality lead also hosts monthly support sessions to go through each domain in-depth. Links to join are at the bottom of this newsletter.


In order to support services with their self-assessment, over the past 5 years we have developed a robust resource library with templates and examples of best practice. We have videos covering each domain, video guides to using the website and even resources to help explain accreditation to patients.


As part of the celebrations, why not take part in our Twitter merch giveaway? We want to hear about your greatest achievements since joining PR too! Entries close midnight 24 April. 


A huge thank you to you all, whether you've been here from the beginning or joined last week. We love to see you at our training sessions, at conferences and online.
