Learn how the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust achieved Imaging Service Accreditation Scheme accreditation with support of the Radiology benchmarking project.

Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was one of the first wave of NHS Trusts to be granted Foundation Trust status in April 2004.

ISAS is a patient-focused assessment and accreditation programme that is designed to help diagnostic imaging services ensure that their patients consistently receive high quality services, delivered by competent staff working in safe environments.

Undertaking the Imaging Service Accreditation Scheme has been beneficial enhancing all aspects of service delivery, driving efficiency and quality of care and also providing a competitive advantage.

“I think that much of what ISAS ask us to do improves our practice. This is refreshing and inspiring." Staff feedback.

The NHS Benchmarking Network Toolkit enabled the Radiology team to examine our good practice and to use this data as evidence for the Imaging Service Accreditation Scheme. The national conference also revealed good practice from other Trusts that we could take on board.

NHS Benchmarking Network project support

The NHS Benchmarking Network Toolkit helped to analyse the data and make comparisons with other hospitals of a similar size to see how the Trust was performing against standards. It enabled the Radiology team to examine their good practice against other services and to use this data for ISAS evidence.
