Spire Hartswood Hospital are celebrating following an unannounced visit from the independent regulatory health care body, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The CQC checks that healthcare providers across the UK are complying with the government’s standards of quality and safety.
The report, which was published last month, concluded the hospital achieved all levels of compliance covered by their inspection including respecting patients, care and welfare, and cleanliness and infection control.
Mark Gilmour, hospital director, said: “We are delighted with the outcome of the inspection. Unannounced visits ensure we’re measured against how we operate on a daily basis. Our ethos for running Spire Hartswood Hospital is uncomplicated; 'Would I be happy for my family and friends to receive that level of care?' It’s very simple and ensures that the care and service we provide leaves our patients to concentrate purely on their recovery.”
Head of clinical services, Garry Court, added: “Receiving the seal of approval from an external organisation of the CQCs calibre is greatly reassuring, it confirms that the entire team at Spire are working together to deliver excellent care to our patients.”
Spire Hartswood Hospital has had a very successful year, with an independent survey in 2013 finding that 99% of patients rated Spire Hartswood as excellent very good or good, compared to 98% in 2012 and 2011.
