THE Cameron Hospital based Fife Rehabilitation Service (FRS) has been recognised for its “continued excellence” in delivering in-patient rehabilitation services.

The service has retained a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its programme.

FRS, which provides assessment and rehabilitation for people with physical disabilities due to a neurological cause, including patients with multiple sclerosis, acquired brain injuries and traumatic brain injuries, was the first hospital-based rehabilitation service in the United Kingdom to gain CARF accreditation in 2003, retaining this accreditation in both 2006 and 2009.

In its latest report CARF says: “FRS demonstrates a firm commitment to the provision of quality rehabilitation services and continued excellence in addressing the needs of patients.”

Dr Lance Sloan, consultant in charge of FRS, said: “This is testament to the continued hard work of all the staff within the unit and their commitment to providing a quality service to patients.”
