ECT clinic receives national accreditation
The Trust’s electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) clinic in Peterborough has been officially accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists after demonstrating the highest standards of patient care.
ECT clinics are inspected every three years against over 200 care standards by ECTAS – the Electroconvulsive Therapy Accreditation Service – a voluntary network which uses a system of peer review to improve the quality of services.
Vickie Bolderson, ECT Team Leader, said: “The feedback has been really positive and it’s great to be part of such a supportive network of clinics across the country. We’re also pleased that we have received commendations in training, research, and patient experience.”
