Alison Woolner, Matron at Spire Little Aston Hospital, says "We’ve been awarded the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark at Spire Little Aston Hospital. This award was developed in collaboration with more than 400 people living with cancer, who helped to shape its criteria.
The Macmillan QEM recognises that Spire Little Aston Hospital provides a welcoming and comfortable environment for people with cancer. It also acknowledges that we respect our visitors’ privacy, we treat you with dignity and that our facilities will help improve your well-being."

The MQEM aims to set the highest possible standards for cancer care environments, driving forward the design and use of facilities, based on a robust understanding of the needs of people affected by cancer. The hospital was marked against criteria which included five core principles of quality in cancer care including accessibility, privacy and dignity, comfort and well-being, choice and control and support for patients and relatives.
