Our Hospital Achieves CHKS Accreditation
20th March 2019
We are pleased to announce the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth has been fully accredited by CHKS for its processes and standards which meet international best practice standards, legislation and regulatory requirements.
Accreditation by CHKS provides a standards-based framework for quality assurance and quality improvement. Taking part in the voluntary process of accreditation gives an organisation the resilience and vigilance required to deliver consistently high quality healthcare services.
Moyra Amess, CHKS Director, Benchmarking, 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.”
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 an external team of surveyors carries out a final assessment.
CEO Caroline Fox added: “I’m delighted we have achieved full CHKS accreditation. It’s a testimony to the high standards we continually strive to achieve thanks to our staff.”
