the Thames Valley private hospital has just been given a ‘Good’ rating by the country’s health watchdog the Quality Care Commission (CQC).
After a rigorous inspection of the Spire Thames Valley Hospital, Wexham, the CQC was able to give it an across the board ‘Good’ rating making comments such as:
- Staffing levels were well monitored and provided a high standard of care
- Cleanliness was good and this was reflected in infection control policies, processes and infection rates.
- The senior management team were visible, had good oversight of governance and continually strove for improvement
Hospital Director Philip Tyler said he was delighted with the rating which was ‘a credit to everyone involved with the hospital’.
“The CQC inspection really is crucial to us as a hospital and for us to get and across the board good rating 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 throughout to admin staff, nurses and consultants, everyone should take some pride in this achievement,” he said.
