The North West Informatics Skills (ISD) Network has been running their Excellence-in-Informatics (workforce) Accreditation scheme for a number of years, 33% of organisations are currently accredited to the level 1 standards. NW ISD volunteered this year to pilot a peer validation process for the Digital Maturity Assessment. Six organisations (including one Mental Health Trust) participated in this process which involved gathering of evidence and face to face peer meetings to discuss finding and ratings.
