National Award for Oncology Department

National Award for Oncology Department

Congratulations to the oncology unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital who have recently been awarded the prestigious Macmillan Quality Environmental Mark (MQEM).

The award is the first of its kind in the UK which recognises and rewards good practice and high standards within the physical environment of a cancer care building.

The scheme is open to any healthcare providers from the public, voluntary or private sectors that operate cancer care buildings. The assessment process took place over five hours and was carried out by external assessors.

Pictured former department manager Liz MacMillan, Jennifer Wilson and Evelyn Paterson receiving the award which will be displayed in the reception area and will be reassessed every three years to make sure high standards are maintained.
