Patient notifications

Our ambition is always to offer excellent standards of customer service, patient safety and clinical accountability, but we are not complacent and continuously seek improvement.

We monitor clinical quality and safety, and report this from “Ward to Board” across every Spire hospital and the Group. We maintain transparency by openly sharing information both within and between our hospitals, the NHS and our Regulators.

Strong governance means at times patients may need to be notified as part of an on-going investigation. This enables us to respond to incidents quickly and effectively, to learn from and avoid repeating mistakes, and apologise if things go wrong.

The table below sets out Spire’s current on-going patient notifications of scale where we have identified concerns about a consultant's practise or other matter.
