Once awarded, continued accreditation will depend upon annual compliance submissions which must be accepted by the ACSA Committee. The accreditation cycle lasts 4 years after which point the cycle starts again with an onsite visit.

*Homerton Hospital was the first of all the departments in the United Kingdom to have achieved accreditation in 2014 and was reaccredited in 2018.

**Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) was formed on 1st October 2017 following the merger of Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM). ACSA accreditation pertains only to sites originally under CMFT.
