Colney-based Spire Norwich Hospital received an unannounced visit last month 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, cleanliness and infection control. The CQC concluded the hospital achieved all levels of compliance covered by their inspection.
Dan Cyprus, 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 Norwich Hospital is uncomplicated, “would I be happy for my mother to receive that level of care”. It’s a very simple method to ensure that the care and service we provide leaves our patients to concentrate purely on their recovery”.
Head of clinical services, Alison Green, 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. 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”.
