Air ambulance passes CQC inspections
The East Anglian Air Ambulance has passed its most recent inspections by the healthcare regulator.
Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) visited the charity's Norwich base to assess the quality of care it delivers.
The charity passed the CQC's inspection with flying colours after being assessed on the care and welfare of patients, cleanliness and infection control, and the way it manages a patient's consent to care and treatment.
Tim Page, chief executive, of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, said: 'The CQC gave us a thorough inspection and we are very pleased with the results. We aim to be a leader in pre-hospital emergency medicine and the CQC has recognised the efforts we are making in this direction.'
'There is more work to do, of course, and we are already aiming to exceed these high standards, but our dedicated operations and clinical staff should feel proud that they helped the charity to achieve such positive feedback.'
