Medequip has had confirmation of corporate accreditation from CECOPS across all of its community equipment contracts following audits in recent weeks.
The company recently achieved accreditation from the standards body for its four London sites, which between them serve 17 of the capital’s 32 boroughs, and has now bagged a full sweep for all of its UK tenders.
Medequip said that as part of its service strategy it has worked closely with CECOPS to ensure its operating processes are “industry-leading” and “putting it ahead of the game” in the industry.
Nigel Cook, director of HR, SHEQ and governance at the equipment provider, said: “CECOPS has helped Medequip meet and exceed customer expectations whilst always maintaining the company ethos of putting the end-user at the heart of what we do.”
CECOPS’ CEO, Brian Donnelly, said that CECOPS is the “gold standard” for quality in the assistive technology space.
“We are delighted that Medequip has achieved corporate accreditation for all of its community equipment contracts.
“Its commitment to quality was evident and it has worked incredibly hard throughout the process.”
Medequip supplies community equipment to local authorities and the NHS and with a turnover of £160m and has held CECOPS accreditation for a number of its sites and contracts since 2015.
CECOPS is a user-led independent certification and standards body, whose job is to raise the standard of all assistive technology related services across the UK.
Operating out of 19 depots across the country and covering a population of more than 14.5m people, Medequip said it wants to “lead the way in best practice and ensuring the highest quality of service to its customers and service users alike”.
