The Emergency Department at the UHNM has enrolled on to the internationally recognised Excellence in Practice Accreditation Scheme (EPAS). This is a project which encourages the demonstration of excellence in the delivery of care within the Emergency Department. We are the first Emergency Department nationally to apply for this accreditation.

The Emergency Department team have used a multi-disciplinary and team-building approach to demonstrate best practice against the six standards set out in the EPAS project.

The scheme has enabled the Emergency Department team to disseminate its excellent care, innovations and pioneering work to a wider audience. We are proud of the service that we deliver and are excited to receive local, national and international recognition.
