COBALT IMAGING CENTRE ACCREDITATION SUCCESS, SIX YEARS RUNNING.

Local charity Cobalt believe every patient deserves the highest of standards of service.  For six years running the local medical imaging charity has been recognised by The Imaging Services Accreditation Scheme (ISAS) for delivering consistently high quality services.  ISAS is an accreditation programme designed to help diagnostic imaging services such as Cobalt constantly improve and maintain quality across the range of procedures and services they provide.

Cobalt was the first imaging centre in the United Kingdom to achieve accreditation with ISAS back in 2010 and has since successfully maintained annual re-accreditation with the latest achievement being announced this month.

The assessment includes a visit from experts in the imaging and health services field.  They look at the following areas:

• clinical services
• patient experience
• facilities
• resource and workforce
• safety.

This includes timely and accurate diagnosis of patients, whether rooms and equipment are adequate, competency of staff, safety standards and the ability for patients to give feedback in order to improve their experience.

Peter Sharpe, CEO, Cobalt Health said “Cobalt’s continued accreditation with ISAS assures doctors that they are referring their patients to a high quality and safe imaging service.   Our staff  have a real sense of unity and pride, not only in the achievement itself but also in knowing that the services we provide are both excellent and continually improving, as has been demonstrated year on year”.

Patients to Cobalt come from all over the UK and over 100 written comments on their experiences are received each month. Here are a couple of recent testimonials:

“This was my 10th visit. I never take for granted the kindness, care, welcome, dignity and respect I am always shown. The team makes a stressful procedure much, much easier to bear. Thank you very much”.

“This was my 7th PET (positron emission tomography and computed tomography) scan. The amazing staff greeted me as they always do, like an old friend. I cannot fault the service that Cobalt provide”.
