Everything we do is driven by quality, and our desire to continually improve our techniques to give you the best chance of success. We have to work within a stringent set of standards laid down by our regulator, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA).
GCRM has a comprehensive quality assurance system and achieved recognition of this through ISO certification in 2009. GCRM is currently certified to ISO standard 9001:2008.
Our quality management system ensures that the care we provide is of a consistently high standard. We carry out frequent internal audits to evaluate our service and identify areas for improvement. The quality assurance system is robust, with external audits from the ISO certification body, and regular inspections from the HFEA to make sure of regulatory compliance.
GCRM is also delighted to be one of the first UK laboratories to achieve certification with ISO standard 15189:2012 for our hormone laboratory, which specifies requirements for quality and competence in medical laboratories.
