NRS Healthcare gains corporate CECOPS accreditation for all community equipment and wheelchair services
NRS Healthcare has become the first organisation to gain corporate CECOPS accreditation for both community equipment and wheelchair services, covering all the services they provide across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
NRS Healthcare is a leading provider of community equipment and wheelchair services in the UK, providing services to local authorities, the NHS, and the general public. NRS delivers a wide range of assistive technologies to support people in keeping them safe and independent.
CECOPS CIC is the independent standards and accreditation body for assistive technology services.
CECOPS accreditation is a regular feature in service specifications for assistive technology services, and is a way of assuring commissioners that services are meeting quality and performance related standards.
Jerry Benson, Chief Executive, NRS Healthcare, says “Working to the CECOPS outcome-based quality framework across community equipment and wheelchair services, and being independently assessed against this, has helped us immensely. It will help us to deliver the highest possible standard of service to our customers and stakeholders.”
CECOPS CEO, Brian Donnelly, says “CECOPS is the gold standard for quality in the assistive technology provider space. We are delighted that NRS Healthcare sees the value in our standards and scheme. It is great that NRS has achieved corporate accreditation for all of their community equipment and wheelchair services contracts. Their commitment to quality and improving standards is impressive and it is evident why they are a leading provider in the space. Well done!”
