Quality assurance (QA) is essential to ensure the safety of patients, through checking the integrity, function and accuracy of equipment, and is mandatory under the Health and Social Care Act. A QA programme is also required by inspecting bodies and accreditation schemes such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI). Further drivers include standards and guidance from professional bodies and societies.
