NHS-Speak
A process undertaken by an NHS body to benchmark itself against the Practice Plus National Audit Instrument. To be robust, the organisation must use triangulation to compile the information put in its self-assessment report, which must be signed off jointly by the staff-side organisation and management, and communicated to staff before validation. The self-assessment report will form the main part of the validation. Organisations should undertake self-assessment regularly to identify organisation progress or lack thereof, and ensure readiness for validation.

Self-assessment methods
Focus groups (topic- or discipline-based), staff meetings, one-on-one interviews, recent assessments (e.g., staff opinion surveys), Commission for Health Improvement (which became the Healthcare Commission, which in turn was absorbed by the Care Quality Commission), Investors in People and Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts.
 
Supporting documentary evidence
