Dignity award for sexual health services

The Wheatbridge sexual health team have been successful in achieving the Option 2 Dignity Award by Derbyshire County Council. 

The Option 2 assessment replaces the old ‘silver’ dignity award and requires evidence of lasting changes made within the service to benefit the patient. The team have shown real drive in achieving a patient focussed environment, which addresses and supports dignity for our client group.

In the words of the assessor:

‘ In my opinion this ward is a flagship of how things should be done across the County, it shows the attention to detail has been considered on all points and I have no hesitation in recommending the Sexual Health team for the Option 2 Award’.  Chris Whittaker, Derbyshire County Council.

This is great news for the service.

Thanks go to the Dignity champions for their hard work, as well as to the rest of the team who have input into the achievement of this award.
