We were able to achieve a “Satisfactorily Met” rating against all the core items in standard 1,2 and 3 of the National Safety and Quality Health Service standards.

Further, we were able to achieve 8 items that were deemed “Met with Merit.” This is an outstanding achievement and represents Alwyn’s continued commitment to quality improvement. These were in the following areas:
