We are delighted to announce that Wast Hills hospital in Kings Norton, Birmingham, has received Autism Accreditation from the National Autistic Society. Wast Hills has demonstrated its commitment to understanding autism and that the hospital is setting the standard for autism practice.
The endorsement highlights to commissioners, regulators, the people the hospital supports and their families, that the staff are dedicated to providing the best possible care and support.
Autism Accreditation is an internationally-recognised process of support and development for all those providing services to people with autism. It provides a structured framework and advisory support in order for the provision to reflect on its current practice and continue to develop in line with the latest thinking around working with people with autism.
Wast Hills is also one of only a very small percentage of care services which have received the ultimate accolade of ‘Outstanding’ from the Care Quality Commission.
Victor Mudarikwa, Manager at Wast Hills, said: “To achieve Autism Accreditation is terrific news for all involved. For this to follow on from an Outstanding inspection from the CQC is incredibly rewarding and demonstrates the caring, professional and committed way the team works day in, day out.”
Sharena Record, Divisional Managing Director for our Central Division, said: “Wast Hills goes from strength to strength and continues to provide quality care and an excellent service to the people we support. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the fantastic team at Wast Hills. I am so proud of them all.”
