RHN achieves prestigious National Preceptorship Interim Quality Mark

The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) has set a new benchmark in nursing excellence by becoming the first independent charity hospital in the UK to achieve the National Preceptorship Interim Quality Mark.

This significant accomplishment, effective from 1 January 2024, underscores RHN’s commitment to providing exceptional preceptorship for its nurses, aligning with the standards of the NHS England National Preceptorship Programme.

Fariba Sarajzada, who leads the RHN’s Preceptorship programme, expressed immense pride in this achievement. “Achieving the National Preceptorship Interim Quality Mark is a huge milestone for RHN. This recognition not only affirms our dedication to nursing excellence but enhances professional growth and development opportunities for our nurses, underpinning high standards of patient care through skilled and well-supported nursing staff.”

This achievement is particularly notable as it is awarded to organisations that meet rigorous criteria. It is valid for two years and recognises quality and effectiveness of the preceptorship programmes offered by the RHN, which ensures newly qualified nurses receive the best possible start to their careers. It demonstrates RHN’s role as a leader in nursing education and patient care, setting a standard for others in the healthcare sector.

For RHN, this is more than just an award; it is a reflection of the hospital’s firm dedication to nurturing the next generation of nursing professionals. This achievement will undoubtedly have a long-lasting impact on the quality of care provided at RHN, benefiting both the nurses and the patients they serve.
