PLAN supports liaison services to continually improve the quality of psychiatric liaison in hospital settings.

Each year, mental health liaison teams are evaluated against the PLAN service standards. The process is ongoing, rather than a single iteration, and members are expected to take part in a self review every year and a peer review every two years.
