The National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC), part of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, has been awarded the coveted international accreditation of excellence for its' care of adults and children with spinal cord injury.

The centre, at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, has been awarded the highest level of Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The centre says it's an indication of their dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of its' patients.

It is the only NHS spinal injuries centre in England and Wales to achieve accreditation - and the young person's unit, the only centre of its kind in Europe.

The accolade follows rigorous evaluation by assessors who visited the centre looking at all aspects of the rehabilitation programme for patients staying in hospital and those attending appointments.

This award gives us a strong foundation to further develop our services and to ensure the NSIC continues to be at the forefront of spinal cord injury care."
