Care Quality Commission

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. Their role is to ensure whether services are provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations that patients get a good standard of care and in cases where this is not happening, they have the ability to act quickly to ensure changes are put in place.

CQC apply 5 questions for the assessments of services:

  1. Are they safe?
  2. Are they effective?
  3. Are they caring?
  4. Are they responsive to people’s needs?
  5. Are they well-led?

Across all our centres and sites, we continuously and regularly monitor our standards against all areas of the CQC assessment and continuously strive to deliver a superior service and excellence in healthcare to our patients and partners.

Quality Standards for Imaging (QSI)

Formally known as ISAS (Imaging Services Accreditation Scheme), the Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI) is an independent assessment of an organisation’s competence. It has been developed by the Royal College of Radiologists and the College of Radiographers to support diagnostic imaging services to make continuous improvements to ensure that patients consistently receive high-quality services delivered by competent staff working in safe environments.

The QSI articulates the expectations of good imaging, international radiology and teleradiology services. It reflects wide consultation and valuable comments and suggestions received from professional colleagues and relevant UK government agencies and regulatory bodies.

To meet the QSI requirements of an accredited service, we are reviewed against:

  • Leadership and management
  • Patient experience
  • Facilities, resources and workforce
  • Clinical
  • Safety

It is against this standard that Prime Health’s services are evaluated for their performance. By meeting this standard, we can be assured that a quality management system and culture is embedded across our service.

Some of our services have been inspected and some are pending.
For a list of our services that have received the QSI accreditation to date, please visit the QSI website.

ISO270001

Every day we manage the information and images for hundreds of active patients and records for thousands more, and it is vital that we can assure our patients and referrers that their data is being handled in a safe and secure manner.

It is only natural that given the high standards we hold that we look to be accredited to the appropriate ISO standard. ISO 27001 is the international standard for implementing an information security management system (ISMS), and at Medical Imaging Partnership we are regularly audited by an independent certification body (most recently in January 2021) to ensure we conform to the requirements of this high standard of data security.

NHS Framework

Medical Imaging Partnership have been working with the NHS for over 10 years and are on a number of frameworks that allow us to deliver services to patients on behalf of the NHS.

Our services range from providing diagnostic imaging – such as MRI and x-ray – through to specialist medical imaging reporting using a network of radiologists across the UK. We are commonly contracted through the NHS Small Business Services frameworks, and following the COVID pandemic we have seen an increasing number of contracts with NHS provider organisations through the NHS Increasing Capacity Framework – of which we are an approved provider.

The NHS is always seeking innovation in service delivery, and at Medical Imaging Partnership we have been able to support the NHS in a number of ways – deploying services quickly and efficiently in response to changing need. We regularly monitor the NHS provider portals as we look to help do more to support the NHS, and look forward to doing so for many years to come.
