St. Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin’s National Centre for Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) Team has been re-accredited by the European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society.

This followed  a DQS-European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (ENETs) accreditation team re-accreditation visit as part of an international Centre of Excellence certifications process.  The team consisted of internationally renowned NET specialist auditor, Prof Kjell Oberg and Dr Andrea Sydow (representing DQS auditing services).  The  rigorous accreditation process covered a large number of areas in the NET field, including service structure, NET-consultation process, overall scientific activities and patient involvement.

Following the accreditation process, the auditors determined that the SVUH NET Centre should be recommended for full certification for five years and additional recommendations for improvement to be implemented within this time frame were also provided to the NETs team.

The SVUH NET MDT consists of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, nursing and administrative staff.
