PPQM (Patient Partnership Quality Mark)

South Street Chiropractic was 2 years old at the beginning of February and the time has flown by. We are going from strength to strength and have recently been presented with an award. 

 

On the 1st February, coinciding with our 2nd birthday, the clinic was awarded the Patient Partnership Quality Mark  (PPQM) by the College of Chiropractors  at ceremony in central London. A big thank you goes to Dawn Leaworthy for all her help and hard work in compiling our entry.

 

The award was initiated in 2006 by the College of Chiropractors to recognise excellence in meeting the expectations patients have about their chiropractic care.  The PPQM examines all the systems we have in place to ensure that patient’s receive the highest standards in terms of access, safety, record keeping, confidentiality, communication and patient education.  In a nutshell, it means that we do things the right way.  South Street Chiropractic is currently the only clinic in the whole of North Devon to hold this award and one of only a few in the South-west, so it means a great deal.

 

It’s gratifying that the College of Chiropractors has recognised the high levels of patient care offered at the clinic and has chosen to select us for the award. Patient satisfaction is our priority and this is reflected in the high number of personal referrals, but this award is the icing on the cake.

 

Now that the trumpet blowing is over, please let me also say a very big thank you to all our patients.  The motivation for all of us has always been to help those in pain and maintain the spinal health of the local community.

 

We look forward to seeing all our patients over the next few months and taking the best possible care of you for as long as possible.
