The Information Standard


Guideposts Trust is proud to be a certified member of the NHS commissioned Information Standard, which aims to improve the quality of health and social care information nationwide. The Standard is a rigorous set of criteria which ensures the information we produce for dementia web is clear, accurate, balanced, evidence-based and up-to-date.

As part of the strict quality-control guidelines we conduct reviews with experts as well as those directly affected by the information itself; service users. With this in mind we are currently conducting focus groups with our target audience to better understand how best we can improve the website.

All planned dementia web content will be produced in accordance with the scheme and marked with the Information Standard logo. Any content currently on the site that is not marked with the logo is not included in the scope of the Standard.
