Dorset County Hospital Given "Trustworthy" Mark


8:21am 19th November 2013

You can rely on information given to you by Dorset County Hospital's NHS Foundation Trust.

They've been given a clean bill of health by The Information Standard.

The hospital can now display its quality mark on literature and on its website.

It means patients can trust the information they're getting is reliable.

Ann Robinson, director of public awareness for The Information Standard, commented: "With so much information available now, it is vital the public be able to differentiate between information that is and isn't trustworthy. This is why The Information Standard was established, with its easy to spot quality mark, the public just need to check the mark is on the leaflet or website they're reading to know that the health information produced by that organisation can be relied upon. It is great therefore that Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has become the latest member of the programme and has been recognised as being a trustworthy source of information."
