Spire Elland Hospital has just been given a ‘good’ rating by the country’s health watchdog - the Quality Care Commission (CQC) - with an ‘outstanding’ for effectiveness.
After a rigorous inspection of Spire Elland Hospital, the CQC was able to give it an across the board ‘good’ rating making comments such as:
- "There were good infection prevention and control systems in place and hospital acquired infection rates were very low."
- "Patient feedback demonstrated that patients were listened to and time was taken to ensure that they understood their care, treatment and condition."
- "Patients were treated with dignity, respect and kindness and were supported in decision-making."
- "PROMs data from 2014/15 showed the hospital’s adjusted average health gain for primary knee replacement was significantly higher than the England average."
Hospital Director Helen Atkinson said she was delighted with the rating which was "a credit to everyone involved with the hospital- it is a testament to the level of care and quality that is at the heart of everything we do.
"The CQC inspection really is crucial to us as a hospital and for us to get an across the board 'good' rating and an 'outstanding' in effectiveness is something we are all very proud of.
"It demonstrates a very strong performance from staff across the whole hospital with the consistent delivery of high standards of care throughout. From housekeeping and catering through to admin staff, nurses and consultants- everyone should take some pride in this achievement” she said.
