GOLD National Award for Local Business Lushington Chiropractic
Lushington Chiropractic Clinic is one of the first to earn the prestigious GOLD Quality Mark from the College of Chiropractors. Chiropractic is now the third largest healthcare profession in the western world, more people than ever are seeing chiropractors to help with their aches and pains.
To achieve this top award, Lushington Chiropractic had to show they delivered patient centered care, that they were meeting gold standard guidelines, had meticulous safety records and were contributing to national learning databases. They also had to demonstrate excellence in: clinical audit; patient and public risk management; diversity, inclusivity and access policies.
This latest award will compliment the clinic’s Buy with Confidence Mark and other customer service and ethical practice awards.
Patient and ex-back pain sufferer Martyn Shanks says: “Well done Lushington. You’re always so welcoming. I love visiting and really appreciate felling better. Keep up the hard work – I know you will.”
Doctor of Chiropractic (not medical) & Lushington Chiropractic Principal, James Revell says: “We’re proud of our reputation in the local community and the results we achieve with our guests on a daily basis. We have a great team, all committed to the highest of standards who love what they do. We’re delighted that years of hard work have finally paid off with this gold award.
I’d like to thank everyone in the team and all our guests for all their kind words and support.”
