02/04/2012

The Macular Unit at Fairview in the Mater Hospital has been successful in achieving the RNIB Northern Ireland Model of Excellence Award as an exemplar service for blind and partially sighted people.

Who achieves Model of Excellence Awards

RNIB Northern Ireland makes "Model of Excellence" awards to organisations that are exemplary in the way they work to meet the needs of people with sight loss.

Earlier this year, RNIB assessed the Macular Unit at Fairview against standards which include:

  • physical accessibility
  • staff training
  • accessibility of information.

The award will be presented at the RNIB Gala Dinner on 26th April. This year's dinner is being held at Titanic Belfast.

Congratulations to Service manager, Paula Grant and her team for the work they have put into ensuring that patients have the best possible experience at the Fairview Unit.
