The Rowans Hospice achieves CHKS accreditation

1 February 13

The Rowans Hospice is delighted to announce that following a comprehensive inspection survey and report, it has successfully achieved its CHKS re-accreditation which is valid for three years. This means that The Rowans Hospice complies with quality standards as defined by CHKS national regulations and demonstrates clear systems and a drive to continually improve quality throughout the organisation.

The Rowans Hospice strives to provide the best quality care and the CHKS mark offers assurance to service users that The Rowans Hospice is an elite healthcare provider. As well as offering a holistic approach to care, well-being and a peaceful environment, the Hospice is able to demonstrate that there is total commitment to provide the best quality services for patients, maintain financial stability and retain the confidence of donors, funders, volunteers and staff.

Jenny Redman, Quality Manager at The Rowans Hospice, said: "Patient care is at the heart of everything we do and this CHKS accreditation recognises our dedication to deliver quality services.

"Team spirit was clearly demonstrated in the build-up to the survey and evident during the actual inspection itself. I am so proud of what we have achieved."

The Rowans Hospice will continue to monitor progress, measure compliance against the standards and make improvements where necessary. The standards:

  • are referenced to the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Department of Health End of Life Strategy and Essence of Care
  • have been developed in consultation with healthcare experts and hospice service providers
  • provide a framework to support CQC registration and provide evidence to regulators
  • are mapped to the internationally-recognised ISO9001:2008 standard for quality management systems.
