Spire Manchester Hospital received an unannounced visit on 22nd May 2013 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 recent inspection focused on key and topical areas including respecting patients, care and welfare of patients who use the service, consent, management of medicines, complaints and requirements relating to workers. The CQC concluded the hospital achieved all levels of compliance covered by their inspection.
Chris Chadwick, 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. My ethos for running Spire Manchester Hospital is uncomplicated, “would I be happy for a member of my family to receive that level of care”. It’s a very simple method to ensure that the quality of care and service we provide leaves our patients to concentrate purely on their recovery.”
Head of clinical services, Dawn Davies, added “Receiving an excellent report from an external organisation such as the CQCs confirms that the entire team at Spire are working together to deliver excellent care to our patients consistently and continuously. I’m very proud of the team and we will continue to rigorously review all aspects of our service to ensure we maintain the high level of care already being achieved.”
