Why Choose PML?

We are a quality accredited company and central to our services are robust clinical and quality frameworks, designed to conform and exceed national and local requirements. We work with commissioning organisations to ensure that services delivered meet criteria such as CQUIN, QOF, QIPP and aid with CIP. 

Accreditation & Standards

British Standards Institute 
BSI 900: 2008
 

The purpose of ISO 9001 is to provide the requirements for a quality management system (QMS), which is a framework for an organisation to control its processes in order to achieve objectives including customer satisfaction, regulatory compliance and continual improvement.
 
Care Quality Commission Registered for Diagnostic and Screening Procedures 

From October 2010, all adult social care providers and independent healthcare providers need to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Following a rigorous and thorough application process, PML have achieved compliance under the scope of "Diagnostic and Screening Procedures".  As part of the application process, PML have demonstrated to the CQC that we meet the "essential standards of quality and safety" required to ensure our patients received the best quality of care within our service.

Connecting for Health, Information Governance Statement of Compliance 

The Information Governance Statement of Compliance (IG SoC) is the process by which organisations enter into an agreement with NHS CFH for access to the NHS National Network (N3). The process includes elements that set out terms and conditions for use of NHS CFH systems and services including the N3, in order to preserve the integrity of those systems and services. 

The steps in the IG SoC process set out a range of security related requirements which must be satisfied in order for an organisation to be able to provide assurances in respect of safeguarding the N3 network and information assets that may be accessed. This gives clinicians and commissioners the added guarantee that all patient information and records are kept inside the NHS N3 network and not transmitted using other methods.
