Spire Methley Park Hospital has just been awarded a ‘good’ rating by the country’s health watchdog - the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
After a rigorous inspection of Spire Methley Park Hospital the CQC was able to award an across the board ‘good’ rating, making comments such as:
- “There was sufficient qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people’s needs. Staff teams and services worked together effectively to deliver good care.”
- "We found patient care, treatment and support achieved good outcomes and helped patients to maintain their quality of life, based on the best available evidence.”
- "All staff showed a caring approach to their patients. We saw patients treated with dignity and respect, and feedback from patients was positive.”
- “The service took into account the different individual needs of people using the service, including those living with dementia and learning disabilities.”
- “Leaders were visible, promoted an open and fair culture. Staff felt listened to and said the hospital was a good place to work. There was a clear vision and strategy and effective governance systems in place to ensure that quality, performance and risks were managed.”
Hospital Director Mrs Susan Holliday said she was delighted with the rating which was "a credit to everyone involved with the hospital” - we are very proud of our staff and the high standard of quality care which is at the centre of everything we do.
“This rating is a tribute to the hard work and commitment of the whole workforce and will provide our patients with the confidence they are being cared for by a team of professional people whose central aim is to provide a safe, effective, caring responsive and well led service.
"The CQC inspection really is essential to us as a hospital and for us to get an across the board 'good' rating is something we are all delighted with."
