Occupational health service accreditation scheme awards accreditation to 200th service

Today the Safe, Effective, Quality Occupational Health Service (SEQOHS) accreditation scheme is delighted to award its 200th accreditation to Glenn Raybone , based in Kidderminster, Worcester.

SEQOHS accreditation is awarded to occupational health and occupational health physiotherapy services that meet the SEQOHS standards, aimed at improving and sustaining high quality care. The scheme is managed by the Royal College of Physicians of London, on behalf of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine and each service that applies for the accreditation submits to a rigorous peer review assessment process.

Since its launch in 2010, the SEQOHS accreditation has become recognised as the industry standard for occupational health services, with 200 accredited services and many more undergoing the accreditation process. Accredited services encompass both NHS and private sectors and range from single handed practices to multinational companies.

On awarding the service accreditation, Dr Robert Hardman, SEQOHS chair said:

We’re pleased to award SEQOHS accreditation to The Glenn Raybone service, which has demonstrated its commitment to the quality of delivery of occupational health.

It is fantastic to be able to be able to celebrate the SEQOHS accreditation of 200 occupational health services. This is testament to the values that the scheme upholds and we look forward to continuing our work with a further 206 services currently working towards their accreditation.
