This depends on the contract arrangement between the endoscopy service and the STP (sustainability and transformation partnership) or the CCG (clinical commissioning group). Some contracts have specific quality requirements included which can require services to achieve JAG accreditation to comply with the contract. Services would need to contact their commissioner to see if this is the case.
