CECOPS assessments undertaken by DNV Healthcare, global leaders in quality, safety and risk management
Accredited Users of the CECOPS Code of Practice are given a full assessment every three years with interim annual health checks. World class assessors, DNV Healthcare, carry out these assessments on our behalf.
DNV Healthcare is a reputable organisation with an extensive background in the development and management of large scale assessment and inspection schemes. This includes providing assessments for all hospitals in England on behalf of the NHS Litigation Authority, as well as working with Macmillan Cancer Support to assess the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark for cancer care centres throughout the UK.
James Lawrence, Director of DNV Healthcare UK said:
The CECOPS requirements not only focus on safety but have a strong drive towards improving the quality of life for service users. As a foundation, the work DNV will be undertaking on behalf of CECOPS is therefore closely aligned to our values of promoting safety and quality within healthcare.
CECOPS Chairman, Sir Bert Massie CBE said:
Our aim is to ensure every aspect of the Code of Practice Scheme is robust and credible. By contracting DNV as our preferred provider for assessments we have a much greater chance of realising this aim, especially given DNV’s extensive experience and reputation in this particular field.
