Lyn Blizzard, health improvement principal at the PCT, said: “We are delighted to be the first organisation in the region to achieve this accreditation. The health and wellbeing of our staff is of key importance as, without them, we would be unable to commission and provide health services on behalf of the communities we serve.”
