Macmillan gives thumbs up for Spire Harpenden Hospital

09 December 2014

Macmillan has given its thumbs up to the quality of care provided for cancer patients at Spire Harpenden Hospital.

The cancer support charity awarded its ‘Macmillan Environment Quality Mark’ to the hospital after examining the facilities and patient experience on offer.

Spire Harpenden Hospital achieved an above average pass mark and is now re-accredited for another three years.

External assessors for Macmillan spent a day touring the hospital, interviewing staff and checking evidence to ensure that it met its stringent criteria.

Wayne Large, head of clinical services at Spire Harpenden Hospital, said: “I am very proud of my clinical team for this special achievement.

“This three year re-accreditation will give our patients the confidence and assurance that the staff and nurses at the hospital and in our oncology department continue to work to Macmillan’s high standards.”
