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;
"NHS clinicians struggle with what intervention to priorities in pediatric neuro-rehabilitation due to limited clinical time and the complexity of needs. Children, clinicians, parents and schools all have different neuro-rehabilitation priorities"
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we delivery neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"Poor parenting styles affects children's behavior; increased their learning disability; and had a negative impact on emotions; anxiety; anger management post brain injury"
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"Participation in teen sports and normal activities leads to improved quality of life for children and young people post brain injury and helps to maximise outcomes"
"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"
"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"
"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"
"Parent-supported interventions following pediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
