This month The Droitwich Spa Hospital team achieved AfPP Accreditation...

BMI The Droitwich Spa Hospital is the first of BMI’s hospitals to achieve this, as well as the first hospital, in general, to achieve this in the region, and will look forward to sharing the good practice within the group.

The AfPP aims to enhance the quality of care and patient safety in the NHS and the independent sector throughout the UK, by shaping and defining the standards within hospital theatres. AfPP also works to encourage the exchange of professional information between members and co-operation with other professional bodies;
