13 years of meeting international best practice standards!

The Rutland Centre has been accredited by CHKS for its processes and standards which meet international best practice standards.  We are also certified to ISO9001 standard as part of this process!

Following assessment by a team of external senior healthcare professionals, trained as peer review surveyors, the Rutland Centre has been accredited by CHKS. This means its processes and standards meet internationally-recognised best practice, legislation and regulatory requirements.

Accreditation by CHKS provides a standards-based framework for quality assurance and quality improvement. Taking part in the process of accreditation gives an organisation the resilience and vigilance required to deliver consistently high quality healthcare services.

CHKS uses an online system to record information about processes and standards which are submitted by the applicants. This allows users to view comparative information between departments and services and to monitor performance, progress and compliance. Once this information has been submitted our external team of surveyors carries out a final assessment.

Maebh Mullany, Chief Executive of the Rutland Centre says that "this process has added real value to our organisation and ultimately to the experience of our service user. We are constantly striving to improve the quality of all that we do and this accreditation and ISO certification process helps us ensure that day to day our practices are always consistent with our policies, so that our service users have the highest quality treatment experience possible."  

Moyra Amess, Director, Assurance & Accreditation said: “The accreditation process requires dedication and commitment. Every organisation we make this award to has proved to our external assessors that its standards and process meet international best practice standards. This is a significant achievement.”
