Excellence in our DNA

We pride ourselves on our clinical quality, highly skilled team and innovative technology.

Our accreditations and certifications:

CHKS

Our imaging services in Ireland are accredited by CHKS, meaning our processes and standards meet internationally-recognised best practice, legislation and regulatory requirements.

Accreditation by CHKS provides a standards-based framework for quality assurance and quality improvement. Taking part in the process of accreditation gives an organisation the resilience and vigilance required to deliver consistently high-quality healthcare services.

Quality Standard for Imaging

The Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI) sets national quality criteria for imaging services. The QSI is a collaboration between The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) and the College of Radiographers (CoR).

Our QSI accreditation ensures that Medica’s service contributes to improving the quality of our reporting service in the UK. We are regularly audited and assessed to ensure that  our high quality service and best practice improves patient care and outcomes. Clinical practice is a continually evolving field, and our QSI accreditation means that we are independently assessed every year.

ISO 9001

Medica’s quality management system in the UK is certified to the ISO 9001 standard. The standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, process approach and continual improvement. Combined with our other quality accreditations (QSI and CHKS) we ensure that Medica continue to provide our clients and their patients with the highest quality of service.

ISO 27001

Our information security management system is certified to the globally recognised ISO 27001 standard. This certification ensures that Medica continues to manage the security and privacy of data entrusted to us by our customers and all other information including our employees and reporters.

Cyber Essentials

Medica is assessed and certified against the Cyber Essentials standard. It is an effective, government backed scheme that helps to ensure that Medica is protected against cyber security risks. The certification gives Medica’s clients the peace of mind that our security defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks. Whilst Cyber Essentials focuses on common IT security risks it compliements our wider ISO 27001 certified security management system.

Living Wage Employer

In 2021 Medica signed up to The Living Wage Foundation’s ‘Real Living Wage’ to recognise our existing commitment to our employees in the UK. The Real Living Wage is calculated on what people need to live on in both London and across the UK. This rate is higher than the National Living Wage. Medica is proud to pay all employees and contractors the Real Living Wage or higher.

Regulated by the CQC

As a service provider to the NHS and other private healthcare institutions Medica is registered with the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England.
