Community equipment and integrated wheelchair services provider achieves coveted CECOPS accreditation
AJM Healthcare, which provides a range of mobility solutions to the NHS, local authorities and individuals across the UK, has gained the highly regarded CECOPS Corporate Accreditation for its community equipment, integrated wheelchair services and approved repairer services.
The new accreditation highlights AJM Healthcare’s commitment to community equipment and wheelchair services quality and improving standards.
CECOPS (Community Equipment Code of Practice Scheme) CIC is an independent, user-led standards and accreditation body for assistive technology services, working with over 200 services across the UK. It introduces, promotes and maintains high standards of assistive technology services.
Uniquely, CECOPS has developed standards which cover the planning, commissioning and delivery of services, including the clinical and technical aspects.
CECOPS accreditation is a regular feature in service specifications for assistive technology services and is a way of assuring commissioners that services are meeting the best outcome-based quality and performance related standards in the sector.
Now, AJM Healthcare has gained CECOPS Corporate Accreditation for its community equipment and integrated wheelchair services.
CECOPS CEO Brian Donnelly said: “It is very encouraging to see the growing interest in our Corporate Accreditation programme and the value that it brings to services.
“It is great news that AJM has achieved Corporate Accreditation status for its community equipment and integrated wheelchair services contracts. Their commitment to quality and improving standards is impressive. Well done!”
Providing more than 20 services nationwide, AJM Healthcare ensures high-quality, outcome-led services in wheelchair and community equipment to increase independence, choice and control, whilst offering commissioners a cost-effective and efficient solution.
Stephen Peck, Managing Director of AJM Healthcare, commented: “Our main aim is to deliver a good quality service on behalf of our stakeholders, service users and carers.
“Gaining the prestigious CECOPS Corporate Accreditation has helped us immensely in achieving our aim and it provides external validation on our commitment to continuously improving. The CECOPS assessment process was very thorough and commendable and we gained a lot from the experience.”
In November 2019, CECOPS built on its accreditation model by introducing a new grading system for assistive technology services throughout the UK to help drive up quality, safety, performance and user experience in the expanding sector.
