Our nursing achievements

When you join Cromwell Hospital as a nurse, you’ll be joining a team of the best and brightest. Below are just some of the recent achievements of our outstanding nursing teams.

International accreditations

Over the course of 2021-22, with high levels of nursing support, our oncology department has achieved three accreditations; ISO 9001: 2015 for our chemotherapy services. These internationally recognised accreditations support our commitment to providing high quality and safe, effective treatment for our patients.

We understand that cancer care is multi-faceted, and patients deserve to be treated in a safe environment where all their needs are met. This is especially important for our nursing team who provide specialist care at every step of a patient’s journey.

Macmillan Quality Environment Mark

Our oncology team is delighted to have also achieved the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark. We received the maximum score (5/5) for both ‘service experience’ and ‘user journey’.

The MQEM award hospitals that champion cancer environments that go above and beyond to create welcoming and friendly spaces and we are proud to win an award that was designed in collaboration with people living with cancer.

Gold Standards Framework

We are also the first private hospital in the UK to be awarded the Gold Standards Framework Quality Hallmark Award in End-of-Life Care. In recognition of this work, the End-of-Life Care team won the Bupa Global Gratitude Award in May 2022.

“The Gold Standard Framework (GSF) has given me many tools to ensure I can give my patients the best end of life care. It’s helped me to identify dying patients early, and involve the multidisciplinary team in order to deliver excellent advanced care planning and enable the patient to make an informed decision about their preferred place of care/death with their loved ones and allows them to express their hopes and wishes. Encapsulating holistic care is at the forefront of the oncology ward and as a team we all strive to deliver this.”
