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.
In line with the organisation’s quality management system, MATRIX Neurological has all appropriate insurances in place including;
"New parenting support intervention showed how parenting style is related to executive dysfunction in children and young people post brain injury. With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"Brain development is complex and prolonged. Brain plasticity is influenced by a range of factors. Plasticity provides a base for neuro-rehab therapies and treatment"
"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
