Occupational Health Accreditation Achieved
We are delighted to announce that Hampton Knight has received SEQOHS accreditation following our audit earlier this month.
The SEQOHS scheme is managed by the Royal College of Physicians of London on behalf of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine and is an acronym for Safe, Effective, Quality Occupational Health Service and is a set of standards and is a voluntary accreditation scheme for occupational health services in the UK and beyond.
Dame Carol Black’s review of the health of Britain's working-age population, ‘Working for a Healthier Tomorrow’ published in March 2008, advocated clear standards of practice and formal accreditation of all providers who support people of working age. The Government’s response to the report, entitled Improving Health and Work: Changing Lives, endorsed that recommendation and a broad stakeholder group led by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine was set up to develop standards and an accreditation for occupational health services.
Joanne Hughes, Operations Director at Hampton Knight commented: “As a business we are thrilled with the outcome of the recent audit and the achievement of SEQOHS accreditation. The team have worked extremely hard over the last 12 months in preparing for the audit. We have a great team and I am very proud of how we have all pulled together to achieve our certification.'
Also heavily involved with the success was Matt Thomason, Clinical Manager at Hampton Knight who believes that ‘this is a real success for Hampton Knight and from a clinical governance gives our clients comfort we are working to the highest standards within the industry.' Matt also thanked his clinical team, saying: “If it wasn’t for their dedication and commitment to delivering a quality occupational health service on a day to day basis, we would not be where we are now.”
