Oasis Care Support Services awarded for high quality work
Oasis Care Support Services are one of the latest in a long line of charities to be awarded the coveted Quality For Health standard, which demonstrates the delivery of high quality services to local people. To celebrate this fantastic achievement, the Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Gwen Lowe visited Oasis Care Support Services to hear about the service and to present staff and board members with their Quality For Health award.
Quality For Health is a quality assurance system for organisations delivering health and wellbeing services in a marketplace that is increasingly reliant on providers being able to evidence the delivery of high quality outcomes.
Annette Armstrong-Sam, Business/Care manager at Oasis said:
“Quality for Health is a fantastic framework which has helped our organisation to develop safe and robust systems that will ensure the safety and wellbeing of our service users.”
In Kirklees, local voluntary organisations are funded to undertake the Quality For Health award by local statutory bodies that include the Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and, more recently, Kirklees Council.
Penny Woodhead, Chief Quality and Nursing Officer, Greater Huddersfield CCG said:
“As a local Clinical Commissioning Group, we are always looking at new and innovative ways to ensure people have access to the best health and wellbeing services in the area. The Quality For Health standard gives a level of confidence to GPs who may want to refer or signpost a patient that the voluntary and community organisation, like Oasis Care Support Services, is delivering high quality services.”
Cllr Musarrat Khan, Cabinet Member for Health, Kirklees Council said:
“Kirklees Council recognises the important role the voluntary and community sector plays in supporting people to live healthy and well lives. Commissioning Quality For Health demonstrates our commitment to the development of the sector, supporting it to focus on what matters most to people and communities.”
