The PPQM is awarded to clinics that demonstrate excellence in meeting patient expectations while the CMQM is for those that demonstrate excellence in terms of operating.

Philippa Oakley, clinical director, said: ‘We are thrilled to have been recognised. Acorn Health opened in 2014 so we’re delighted to have achieved this recognition in a relatively short period of time.’
