Following a site assessment the accreditation report will be drafted by the lead assessor. This will then undergo the quality assurance process, which can take up to 2 weeks in total, before being forwarded to the service to undertake a factual accuracy check. Finally, the report will be reviewed by the chair of the Endoscopy Services Quality Assurance Group (ESQAG) within one week. The final report will then be forwarded to the service.
