NARU Compliance & Quality Assurance (CQA)


Developing and monitoring national standards.

Quality Assurance:

Reviewing and improving national standards.

Our CQA activities aim to keep specialist responders safe whilst taking calculated risks to improve the clinical outcomes of patients caught within dangerous environments.

NARU works closely with a range of stakeholders and our parent organisation, NHS England, to develop policy which is consistent with that balance of risk.
