Our Wakefield memory service has been accredited for its high standard of service by the Royal College of Psychiatry for the fourth year in a row.
The college’s Memory Services National Accreditation Programme (MSNAP) works with services to improve the quality of services for people with memory problems or dementia and their carers.
The memory team provide specialist assessment, diagnosis and treatment for people with memory problems, helping individuals to better understand their condition and prepare for the future.
The service was assessed against over 200 quality standards to see whether service users and carers, who give evidence anonymously, receive a high quality service.
Receiving accreditation assures staff, service users and carers, commissioners and regulators of the quality of the service being provided.
Richard Clibbens, nurse consultant, said: “Achieving accreditation is a real team effort and everyone in the team has done a great job over the past two years to identify ways to constantly improve and develop the service. It’s great to see the positive changes made on an on-going basis in the service by our dedicated team from administrative staff, through to managers and consultants.”
“Everyone has really worked together to achieve this.”
