Hospital Radiology Department celebrates ISAS accreditation

The Radiology Department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has achieved accreditation as part of the Imaging Services Accreditation Scheme (ISAS).

ISAS is available to imaging services across the UK both within and outside the NHS. Accreditation is the formal recognition that an imaging services provider has demonstrated that it has the organisational competence to deliver against key performance measures. These measures require the Department to achieve high standards of service in relation to patient care and choice, safety, fit-for-purpose facilities, and clinical practices.

The accreditation, granted last week, publicly endorses the high quality patient centred services NNUH continually operate. The Radiology department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is the fastest large acute Trust ever to achieve the accreditation.

Emma Key-Yeomans, Radiographer at NNUH led the project and said: “This award recognises the dedication and care afforded to patients by Radiology staff. We have worked incredibly hard to achieve this status and are extremely pleased that the Department has been recognised in this way”.

Myra Knight, Radiology Service Manager added: “This national award now recognises what is known locally; that the continual dedication and determination shown by all Radiology staff has helped to achieve a high quality and efficient, patient centred imaging service.”
