Rutherford Cancer Centre receives Macmillan quality mark for patient care
Rutherford Cancer Centre South Wales has been awarded the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark (MQEM) by the cancer charity for its excellence in patient care and support services.
The MQEM is a detailed quality framework used for assessing whether cancer care environments meet the standards required by people living with cancer and focuses on four key domains: design and use of space, the user’s journey, service experience and the user’s voice. Rutherford Cancer Centre South Wales achieved an overall score of five (excellent) in the assessment.
A plaque was presented by Macmillan partnership manager SE Wales Kate Williams and partnership quality lead SE Wales Ginny Brink.
