Quality

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Quality is important to us and quality assurance standards are an integral part of the design and implementation of our our projects and services.  We utilise Prince2 Project Management techniques to ensure our approach is consistent and that we meet professional and internationally recognised quality standards in the development and delivery of our products, projects and services.

Additionally quality is embedded within the organisation as stated in our Values which form the basis of our Code of Conduct for all staff.

Whilst we are a small organisation all our operational activities have been developed in line with recommended best practice as stated in the PQASSO Quality Standard Manual.  We have set ourselves an ambitious target to achieve PQASSO accreditation as soon as possible.

 

KEY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

MATRIX Neurological maintains a range of organisational policies to ensure we meet all our legal responsibilities.  These clearly set out key policy aspects including current legislation, how they are implemented and managed and when they are due for review.

Our policies are reviewed on a regular basis as designated in the policy to ensure we remain compliant and operate within current legal frameworks.  We are also part of a number of important Networks to ensure we remain up-to-date with current best practice.  i.e.  The Safe Network with regards to Safeguarding Issues.

All our designated staff are trained Core Level 3 of the Tees-wide Safeguarding Procedures and undergo Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
