As the UK-wide standing committee for quality assessment (UKSCQA) begins consulting on proposals for a new Quality Code, Catherine Boyd and Louis Coffait run down the key changes and proposals.

Based on the feedback we receive, we will then invite tenders under a joint procurement exercise. This will ensure transparency and demonstrate value for money.”
