Our member organisations offer Invited Service Reviews to help Medical Directors and service planners ensure that their clinicians are delivering the highest standards of patient care.

The delivery of good care is not always straightforward, however, and there are many daily challenges for healthcare professionals and the teams they work in. When a healthcare provider needs an external expert opinion, a Royal College invited review can provide expert independent and objective advice in a confidential report.

We believe that invited reviews offer a highly valuable resource by providing healthcare organisations with independent expert advice through reliable, trustworthy peer review processes. Invited reviews support, but do not replace, existing procedures for managing performance.

The specific type and nature of the invited review services offered vary depending on the Royal College or professional body involved.

The Academy has published a Framework for such reviews and also the contact details and services each College offers for invited reviews.
