Our managing director Mark Scutchings has attended a special awards ceremony to mark our UKAS accreditation.
We gained this accolade at the beginning of July after months of hard work by everyone in the company.
This month Mark went to the UKAS head office in Staines to receive our certificate of excellence.
Hearbase won accreditation to the Improving Quality in Physiological Services (IQUIPS) standard for our adult audiology services.
Mark said: “IQIPS is a nationally recognised and prestigious award and a professionally respected sign of quality. It marks us out from the competition and raises standards of entry for all physiological healthcare providers, increasing the standard of care that patients receive.
“In addition to recognising our commitment to clinical quality in audiology, achieving IQIPS accreditation demonstrates our focus on patient care.”
Jason Walker, an independent IQIPS consultant and project manager, is helping us to grow the potential that being UKAS accredited can offer, including enhancing the day-to-day running of the company.
James Gibbs, our head of operations, says that in addition to increasing the quality of our service the IQIPS scheme has benefitted our staff by introducing more efficient and effective ways of working.
