More about us
The Oxford Quality Centre consultants provide an extensive selection of services ranging from:
■Assistance on the installation of a standard (which would include the training and support for key staff to operation the systems internally once complete)
■Additional training/mentoring for new staff or for “topping up” knowledge – especially useful when switching staff to new systems
■Help on auditing – either as an on-going independent auditor able to review procedures from an uninvolved viewpoint or to provide cover for a short period (maternity leave for example)
■Dealing with last minute concerns prior to a certification visit, or when it suddenly becomes clear that your systems had been forgotten and are in need of a rescue. Our consultants can run through a mock certification visit and then present their findings. This takes place in time to make any required changes, with our consultants help if required, before the official visit takes place. Our consultants can also attend the official certification visit in support of the organisation’s own personnel
■Alternatively, you can outsource the running of your systems to our care. This allows your staff to concentrate on their other responsibilities while we ensure that audits, documentation updates, regular record keeping, meetings and related minutes, following up of actions and audit findings are all maintained and up to date
■Finally, we are available for a wide range of consultancy services
