JAG can accredit mobile and static centres used to support bowel scope screening provided they meet all the standards. This includes decontamination, as well as demonstrating how the site meets the quality and safety standards. JAG has a policy for non-operational facilities that may be used for screening.
Screening should only occur when all the following conditions have been met:
- In a JAG accredited unit
- By a JAG accredited endoscopist
- By a service which is engaged in screening quality assurance (QA)
- All the requirements of screening are in place e.g. SSPs, decontamination.
