Darlington Quality

Quality Assurance is everyone’s business. Our shared commitment to those who need care and support, their families and carers and the organisations that represent their interests pushes us to continuously improve our everyday practice. We want to establish a shared vision of high-quality, seamless, integrated and person-centred care. Working together, using a Strength Based methodology will help us to achieve real quality across the service and the borough.

In the centre column below, you’ll find links to our current quality pages on Darlington’s intranet.
