We've Achieved The Gold Standard

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is the first air ambulance organisation in the UK to receive the PQASSO quality mark for its commitment to effective charity management and exemplary standards of practise.

Endorsed by the Charity Commission, PQASSO is a leading quality standard developed for the third sector, and covers all aspects of an organisation, including planning, governance and leadership and management to help run third sector organisations more effectively and efficiently.

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has successfully achieved Level 1 of the standard and is now working towards Level 2, which will incorporate a review of the organisation’s environmental credentials.

Hanna Sebright, chief executive for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, comments: “The PQASSO quality mark evidences our strong commitment to the gold standard of charity practise.

“We strive to excel across all aspects of the organisation, including our dedication to the very best pre-hospital patient care and to performance within the charity, and achieving the PQASSO quality mark is testament to the charity HQ team’s support of this ethos.”

PQASSO forms part of the charity’s on going investment into continuous improvement, for the benefit of patients, their families and the cause’s fundraising supporters.
