The NHS Library Quality Assurance Framework (LQAF) England builds upon the quality assurance tools that have been used to assess the quality of NHS library/knowledge services.

These include:

  • the two Health Libraries and Information Confederation - HELICON accreditation schemes and
  • the 2008 The National Service Framework for Quality Improvement of NHS Funded Library Services in England (NSF).
  • the 2010 NHS Library Quality Assurance Framework (England) also called the LQAF.

Compliance with the national standards is specified in the current Learning and Development Agreements that the Health Education NW has with each Northern Trust.
