CWG impact: Delhi Spas and Gyms to get ratings

To ensure better standards in the wellness services, gymnasiums, spas and other such centres running in the capital will soon be rated on the basis of their quality ahead of 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The National Accreditation Board For Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH), a constituent board of Quality Council of India, has started the process of bringing fitness centres under the grading system.

According to NABH, all gymnasiums, spas, skincare centres, cosmetic care centres, fitness centres and immunisation centres are eligible to get accreditation.

"All wellness centres can fill application form and our specially constituted committee subjected to satisfactory inspection of the facility will give them a certificate of quality services." said Girdhar J Gyani, Secretary General, Quality Council of India.

He said with the lack of any guidelines and standards in the field and mushrooming of unorganised players, accreditation of wellness centres will be a guiding light for the industry in improving the quality of care provided to the general public.

The accreditation programme in Delhi is expected to be completed before the Commonwealth Games.

"Initially, we decided to limit rankings to the national capital. But now we have decided to extend this project to all over the country and priority will be given to places which are expected to get maximum visitors during the Commonwealth Games." said Gyani.

The certification will be initially for three years and will be done by the officers of the accredited agencies, to be selected by QCI.

The initiative, officer say, is getting good support from all the gyms and spas owners.

Gyani said "the standards focus on all aspects of service delivery like customer rights and education, infection control practices, trained and experienced staff, infrastructure, environment, safety, statutory and regulatory compliances."
