After many months of hard work from all members of the team, Cashmere Medical Practice is proud to have finally attained Foundation Standard accreditation for our medical practice, with our certificate being issued on 25/5/16. We were the 2nd practice in the South Island to successfully meet this standard.
Foundation Standard is a stringent set of criteria that a medical practice has to meet, in order to ensure the highest quality patient care. It covers a broad range of topics, including quality of care, accessibility, record keeping, safety of staff and patients, cultural issues and so on. It has taken our team many dozens of hours of hard labour to finally attain this goal, proving that a smaller more intimate practice can offers the best quality of care to you, the patients.
Below you can see for yourself our hard working team, jubilant at having just been awarded our certificate by Vince Barry, the CEO of Pegasus IPA, Martin Carroll our quality assessor and Kate Wang from the New Zealand Medical Association. Well done everybody. In the photo are Cheryl and Elaine (receptionists), Dr Sandra Fountain, Dr David Rollinson and Jan (practice nurse).
