RUH Cardiology team receives prestigious accreditation

The Cardiology team at the Royal United Hospitals (RUH) Bath NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised by a leading professional organisation for providing the highest standards of care.

The British Society of Echocardiography recently awarded full departmental accreditation after a rigorous application and inspection process.

This is a nationally recognised benchmark of quality, and to achieve accreditation the RUH demonstrated reaching high standards in a number of important areas. These included evidence that the department’s equipment and processes ensure safe and effective patient care.

The assessors were also extremely impressed with the culture and ethos of the team and praised the training offered to staff.

Dr Dan Augustine, Consultant Cardiologist at the RUH, said: “This accreditation means our patients can be confident that they will receive the highest quality of care from our team. It is testament to the team’s dedication to ensuring our patients consistently receive the best possible experience.

“I’m so proud of everyone involved for their hard work in reaching this high standard for the people we care for.”

Recent patient feedback on the service also highlights the high standard of care provided by the team, with one patient describing the service as ‘first class’ and another remarking on the ‘kindness, respect and professionalism’ with which they were treated.
