Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells get effective Quality Management with Q-Pulse

One of the UK’s largest acute hospital trusts has implemented Q-Pulse to support Quality Management Systems (QMS) at its flagship cancer centre.

Part of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, the Kent Oncology Centre (KOC) is based at the Maidstone and Kent and Canterbury Hospitals. The KOC provides external beam radiotherapy, brachytherapy, nuclear medicine and chemotherapy treatment to those diagnosed with cancer and serves a population of approximately 1.8 million.

Through implementing Q-Pulse, the KOC successfully met their ISO 9001 requirements, as well as fulfilling CPA and Trust Clinical Government requirements.

Benefits

  • Ease of access to documents, a “pyramid of permissions” structure, and standardised document control introduced across the Centre
  • More than 1000 users across the Directorate now have access to specific and up-to-date management system information
  • Assisted the Centre in meeting ISO 9001 requirements, and also to fulfill CPA and Trust Clinical Governance requirements

The Kent Oncology Centre has found Q-Pulse to be a fully comprehensive, Quality Management compliant tool, which is well-structured and easy to use. In addition, we believe Q-Pulse can be used and customised to suit any service within the NHS.
