Quality and Accreditation at the Acute Neurological Rehabilitation Unit
The Wellington Hospital Acute Neurological Rehabilitation Unit is committed to ensuring that the service it delivers is of a consistently high quality.
We monitor and review many aspects of our programme and facilities at regular points throughout the year and use this information to modify our service and direct our quality improvement plans.
In addition to this we are also reviewed by external auditors and carry Accreditation by CARF, CQC and CHCKS.
CARF (the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is an internationally recognised, independent body that evaluates standards in rehabilitation care around the world.
We have achieved a Three Year Accreditation. This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organisation and shows our substantial conformance to the CARF standards.
An organisation receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programmes and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. More information regarding CARF is available on their website at www.carf.org
The Wellington Hospital is regulated by the Care Quality Commission in accordance with the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care, whether provided by NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations.
