The SEQOHS accreditation scheme is delighted to award its 200th accreditation to Glenn Raybone, a single-handed occupational health provider.
SEQOHS accreditation is awarded to occupational health and occupational health physiotherapy services that meet the SEQOHS standards, which are aimed at improving and sustaining high quality care for workers.
The scheme is managed by the Royal College of Physicians of London, on behalf of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine and each service that applies for the accreditation submits to a rigorous peer review assessment process.
Dr Robert Hardman, SEQOHS chair said:
SEQOHS has now accredited 200 occupational health services since its inception 5 years ago. As with the other 199 services accredited, the Glenn Raybone service has demonstrated the quality of delivery of occupational health. We look forward to working with the service as they demonstrate their ongoing commitment to the quality standards. We also look forward to working with the other services that have registered with SEQOHS and are currently working towards accreditation.
A new outsourcing policy has been launched by the SEQOHS accreditation scheme. The policy covers situations where SEQOHS accredited services are outsourcing clinical services wholesale to unaccredited services.
