Local clinic wins national quality award

Maristow Chiropractic Clinic in Maristow Street, Westbury has been awarded the Clinical Management Quality Mark (CMQM) by The Royal College of Chiropractors.

The CMQM is awarded to chiropractic clinics that demonstrate excellence in terms of operating within a structured and managed clinical environment. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in a range of areas including clinical audit, incident reporting and patient satisfaction.

Clinic director, Kay Pearce, received the award at a ceremony in London at the end of January from the chair of the Royal College’s health policy unit, Dr Mark Gurden.

Kay said, “I feel relieved and thrilled at the same time about receiving this award. It was about a year in the making and the standard set is very high. To have obtained the Mark means we have not just met these expectations, but in some cases exceeded them.

“It basically represents that we follow the recognised “best care” pathways for the management of low back and other common musculoskeletal and always have the best interests of our patients at the forefront of our mind.”
