Christchurch Day Hospital in Fairmile Road recognised for exceptional care provided to patients through Bournemouth University accreditation
STAFF at a Christchurch hospital have been recognised with an accreditation from Bournemouth University for the exceptional care provided to patients.
The Christchurch Day Hospital, based at Fairmile Road, provides specialist assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for older people.
It was awarded the Practice Development Unit accreditation which looks at how services maintain and develop excellence in practice, leadership management, meaningful and effective engagement of users and carers, the support for the care team and how they evaluate practice development.
The PDU Accreditation plaque was presented to staff by Michele Board, an associate professor and deputy head of department for nursing science at Bournemouth University.
She said: “They continue to develop their practice for the benefit of patients.
“The team cares and supports each other immensely, and this cascades to the patients and families that visit.”
Clinical lead at Christchurch Day Hospital, Laura Martin, added: “This is a wonderful boost for our team and allows us to continue the standard of care we have worked hard to embed into our day-to-day.
“It makes a difference to our patients to know they are receiving the very best patient care.”
