(Spin Digit Editorial):- London, United Kingdom Jun 22, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – The Harley Street Health Centre, a private GP and testing clinic based in Central London has announced that it has achieved UKAS accreditation for COVID-19 testing. The clinic has undergone a robust and challenging assessment process with the United Kingdom Accreditation Service as part of government efforts to ensure that only the highest quality providers are supporting the population with COVID-19 PCR testing.

Managing Director Alya Shakir commented, “This is a proud moment for the Harley Street Health Centre. We were concerned early on in the pandemic of the emergence of inexperienced and frankly, dangerous COVID-19 testing services and the move from the Department of Health to insist on UKAS accreditation, even for CQC-regulated clinics, is one we support.

We underwent full scrutiny of our processes and procedures to ensure that we are a safe service providing accurate testing methods and results. The general public should feel absolutely reassured that any clinic or provider that achieves UKAS accreditation for COVID-19 testing has been fully scrutinised and has had to provide evidence of its best practice.

The accreditation process has been an opportunity to inculcate a culture of continuous improvement throughout the whole business and we thank UKAS for their excellent guidance and support throughout this process.”

Clinical director Dr Enam Abood commented, “Our commitment to quality improvement and our positive approach to the accreditation process has resulted in the clinic being the first in the country to be assessed and one of the first to be accredited. This is testament to our fantastic multi-disciplinary team.”
