Greenways AIMS higher

by CWP News - 23 May 2016

Greenways Assessment and Treatment Unit has received national recognition for delivering high-quality care for adults with learning disabilities.

The unit has once again met AIMS (Accreditation for Inpatient Mental Health Services) standards set by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

The accreditation assessed the quality of facilities, staffing, care, patient safety and treatment processes at the inpatient unit off Chester Road, Macclesfield.

This latest recognition marks a successful 12 months for Greenways after the unit was considered “Outstanding” by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) in an inspection of the Trust last summer.

Angela Southern, Ward Manager at Greenways Assessment and Treatment Unit, said: “We’re really pleased to receive our AIMS accreditation, especially following such a successful CQC inspection.

“This was a real team effort that involved everyone in the unit. We’re all very proud of the high standards we maintain here and we’re thrilled that our positive work is being recognised nationally.”

The Greenways team provide specialist assessment and treatments for adults with learning disabilities. The purpose-built unit offers a relaxing, therapeutic environment for patients to manage their conditions.
